Bergers VLD. I cant speek to the 1800 FPS mark I have never taken game at that muzzle velocity. This was at 2900 fps and we found flesh 20 feet behind the animal. I think it would be good but thats just speculation.

Sorry about all that! You just seemed kind of vague. Thanks!

Michael, I run the 140 Berger out of my 6.5 exclusively. MV 2940 the bullet still gives positive expansion at 1100 yds on deer. As you can see from the other posts the short range effects are devastating.

Re: 6.5mm 140 Berger VLD for LARGE mulie bucks?

I shoot a 115gr 6mm out of a 6-284 and it is friggin devastating. Ive shot thru many good sized whiteys with it from front shoulder quartering wiping out the rear leg also. And thats with a smaller bullet. The high sd vld sure seem to do some unbelievable stuff. I built the 6mm for coyotes mainly with a 5% usage on deer and now use it all the time since its quiet and easy to get outa the truck compared to a 30" 300 or a 32" 338 that weighs 20+lbs. I would shoot that 6.5 140 at mulies all day long. That 115 6mm has totally surprised me.
