    best ballistic tipped bullets for 6.5 cals

    Hi all, any you recommend, I am a ballistic tipped fan, dont use anything else

    Hornady 129gn SST.

    Awesomely accurate and deadly.

    Ditto above on SST, but I use the slightly heavier 140gr

    Both stonking rounds
    Sako 75 6.5x55mm-Z6i 3-18x50. MauserM12 .308-SIII 6-24x50. Beretta 690 III Field 12b.

    i use nosler 120 bt in my swede, but found them a bit severe on the humble muntjac
    so i decreased the powder charge by 2g and found another node ,which reduced the fps by 200 to avg [2750 fps]
    they are better on munty now but would still like to reduce it more

    My 6.5 06 would send 120s around 3200fps plus, maybe a bit harsh on bambi then

    I have had good results with the nosler's in 125 gr very very accurate in my rifle.
