The 6.5 x47 i have shot was shooting Barnes TTSX bullets that are lead free gon shot great. I have loaded allot of those X bullets my uncle is in Africa right know with some that i loaded and i have been told to have more on the way so i can load up more when they get back for our whitetail.
The x bullets are extremely deadly and i have made out to thousand yard shots with them in my .308.
