Re: 6.5 bullets 4 elk?

I agree that Nordic shoot in close range ( under 200 yards ) because long range hunting is not allowed

Main problem with 6.5 Bullet they are design to expand at 6.5x55 velocity and if you use them at close range with magnum velocity you get poor terminal balistic effect but at long range you can duplicate 6.5x55 velocity

good shooting

My wife has used her 6.5 x 55 for everything from Antelope to Moose with good effect.

Bullet used was the 140 Nosler partition and the bullet performed very well. This bullet is capable of rear end shots that make it into the boiler room of Moose so I know penetration is very good as is killing effect.

This is from the 6.5 x 55 loaded to pressures for todays guns, not the older 6.5 x 55 gun velocities.

I personally would not choose a bullet except one that will not break totally up on heavy bone of shoulders and hips which leaves you with a few good choices, among which is the Nosler partition....which has been very accurate in all the calibers I have used over the years.
