Thread: Which 6mm bullets?

  1. #1

    Which 6mm bullets?

    For Roe, Fallow and Muntjac.
    I have a list of these:
    Barnes TSX 85Gr good but expensive.
    Speer HotCor 90Gr, loaded some up and tried them on the range but not on deer.
    Speer BTHP 100Gr
    Sierra Gameking 85Gr, read a few negatives about excessive expansion.
    Nosler Partition 87Gr

    I am inclined towards the Speer, they have better BC than Sierra.

    Any experience of the above or any other suggestions?

    Hi Pete, Not sure why you would want to load <100gr bullets for Fallow. I have extensively used Sierra, Speer and Hornady 100gr bullets in various formats SP, BTSP, HP and they all shoot well in my rifle, as Pete suggests choose a round that is accurate and you won't have any problems. Hornady 100gr BTSP's are a very good bullet and are a resonable price compared to Barnes and Nosler, loaded with 45gr of H4831sc they will definately do the job and have taken many many Sika and quite a few Red with these bullets. Note that 45gr of H4831 is a fairly stiff load and should be approached with caution, although I have never had a problem with pressure or case life

    good luck
