Match Bullets On Deer

Hi I was woundering if any one has used the lapua scenar for hunting. I see where several shoot the VLD bullets an seem to like them. I would be useing them in a 6.5x284 with a shilen 1in 8 twist it shoots them in the low 2s. Mostly would be used on whitetail deer from real close lets say 25yds to 400yds.
Thanks for any info.

I was using sierra bthp match on deer w/ my 30-06 loaded pretty light for several deer. I didn't have any problems to speak of since they are such light skinned animals

Hello,

Just test them in wet newspaper and you will see if your recipe will work.

Re: Match Bullets On Deer

i have read that the lapua sceners are not a good hunting bullet, although i do not speak from expieriance. I have shot 6.5x47mm lapua factory loaded ammo with 123 gr sceners and it was under moa at 385 yards, so i thought the accuracy was pretty good for factory ammo just never hunted with it.

Scenars DO NOT open on test media or game.

Re: Match Bullets On Deer

I've used Matchkings and they have always preformed very well for me. I've never used the Scenar, but did talk to a guy who used the 250grainers in his 338 Lapua. He show me a few pictures of cantaloupe size exit wounds on whitetails. He told me that all the shots were within 500yds.
