6.5 MM 139 grain Lapua Scenar Question

Has anyone used the 139 grain 6.5 MM Lapua Scenar for long range work. If so how did it perform and did you use it on any deer size critters.

I am currently working with a 6.5x55 and I really like the BC numbers for this bullet.

    It's been a while since I've seen reports on the Scenars for hunting but it was not favorable. It seems the bullets to receive favorable reports are the MK's (142 gr) and VLD's (130 and 140 gr), specifically the Hunting versions.
