Re: 6.5 95 V Max?

I have a Savage Model 10 Predator in 6.5 Creedmoor and using Varget and loading it to 3275 fps with a COL of 2.710" it shoots about 3/4" at 100 yards. bullet is like a grenade when it hits. Sometimes you will get no exit but that is more of a rarity. I have some pics, but they are a little gruesome for posting on a forum so if you would like to see them just PM me and I can send them to you.

Well, gotta run. Soup is picking me up in 45 minutes. We are going calling this morning.
Cat; that's good to know. I'm toying with getting a 25/06 . One cart that is interesting that I've never had. It works good on caribou and great on wolf but I always thot it would rip a coyote bad. . How big would that bullet make the exit? ?
