Blaser r8 6.5x55 ammunition?


New Member
Hi all

This is my first post and I hope I get some answers.

I’m basically looking for what groups best through my rifle with spending a fortune on boxes of ammunition.

I’ve tried RWS twin core 140grn and I do like them and they do ok but I was looking into trying some sako gamehead pros 130grn but I’ve heard they can be a bit hit and miss with blasers.

I wondered what is everyone else using through their blasers and if anyone has tried gamehead pros throughly their blasers and what were the results?

Thank you

Federal Power shock 140g were grouping very well in my R8 Pro and cost about 28.00 per box

I own an R8 6.5×55. Everything I try groups into 1 euro coin. Factory ammo and handloads.. There is only slight vertical difference between factory 100 gr FOX at about 900 m/s and Sellier Bellot Sierra Game king 140 gr at about 723 m/s. But only a a few cm. The rifle is zeroed to 123 gr FOX. So far I prefer 100 gr Fox for roe deer & long shots and 123 gr Fox for larger stuff and shorter distances. They are superbly accurate and kill like a lightning.
