I have a savage long range hunter in 6.5x284. I am interested in what the best bullet would be for anything from coyotes to mule deer out to 500 yards. I have been playing with the 142 SMK. Just for fun I shot a couple prairie dogs. One actually had a pencil size hole out both sides of his chest and still went 20 yards. Guess that is why they say they aren't for hunting. Any ideas are greatly appreciated. I don't know where the compromise between BC and penetration lies.
