    Look at the "opinions on these groups" thread I posted recently just down the list a little.

    I suspect you will find it will shoot almost anything you put into it better than you can, certainly more than well enough for deer stalking.

    Almost any Blaser shoots itself ;-)
    My Blaser .243, .308 and 30-06 shoots PPU 100gn, 150gn and 180gn respectively, as good as any ammo I can reload.

    In .243 apart from reloads the Federal rounds perform best.

    Well done for coming out ! My R8 6.6x55 prefers federal fusion 140gr.

    My R8 in .270 and .223 prefer Norma ammunition, tried a few other brands but none came close to Norma for groups. No issues with stopping power on deer either.
