    What type of bullet Gaz, sporting or target use?
    There's certainly no shortage of bullet makers that produce bullets in that calibre and around the weight that you are looking for. Why don't you just have a look on the Midway site to give you a hint as to what is manufactured or are you looking for recommendations from site members based on experience with these bullets.
    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.

    If you can source them, the 123gr A-Max will do everything.

    123gr a max, 123 sierra matchking, 123gr scenar , 120gr nosler bt, 120gr matchking. 120gr prohunters. I have shot fallow with all of them out of a 6.5x47 The pro hunters were the best for minimal carcass damage and good group sizes.
