243 hornady 75g sst

It must be a 243 thing lol
My friend shoots 95gr sst in his 243 and has no issues with meat damage
He gets the odd bit but it all depends on shot placement and what the bullet strikes on the way through
Also i use 129gr sst in my 6.5x55 and get very little meat damage on roe

Ive asked the question on another thread about the best round for 243 to minimise meat damage. Ive found the 100g sako gameheads to be very accurate in my rifle with good stopping power, but the damage is high with much of the shoulder being destroyed and large exit wounds. I would have thought though that a lighter bullet and higher velocity would have caused greater damage? Is this just to be expected with 243 regardless of the round being used?
