LR \"huntin\" bullet for lr deer in 6x284

I'm working up loads for my 6-284 using Sierra MK's but was wanting to use a tougher bullet for game. Are there any LR (high B.C.) bullets out there that will stand up to meaga velocity and whack a deer without blowing up?

Swift just came out with a 95gr scirocco bullet in 6mm, I am sure that one would be tough as hell

Good Luck
Steve

Has anyone tried the 115 Tubb bullet for deer yet?
MV in the XP is 2750 with the 115 Tubb.

With a 240 Wby 1-10 twist

85 gr blue meanie weenie from Barnes
85 gr speer boattail hunting bullet


Kills deer and does not blow up nor splatter meat all over the country side. I haven't shot any does so these are all bucks I have shot and had good results. (The real truth is very small bucks, but don't tell anyone)

If they will hold up in my fast 240 I think they will be allright in you slow 6-284. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

If you want more BC you can move up to the speer 100 gr gameking. They group well at 500 yds. I am going to try them out this year I think, depends on what kind of mood I am in when November rolls around.

BC on the scirocco is .419 and it is a 90 gr not 95, sorry.

They are some of the toughest bullets made so keep them in mind. they will expand but I would not ever expect on to come apart on you.

Good Luck
Steve

Slow 6x284 Bull Sh--. The Books are wronge written by Lawyers. My 6x284 can push a 87gr V-Max at 3,600 easily. Its faster than any 240 Free bore weatherby.I think this is a topic for the X files.

The two bullets I mention have performed for me several times each "without blowing up".
