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.

    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.

    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.
