Thank uShould be excellent for large game at close ranges.
The BC is so terrible that for long ranges(over 300yds…maybe even 250) I’d pick a different bullet.
DO NOT bother listening to folks concerned with kenetic energy. Kenetic energy is not important in collisions. Momentum is far better at describing collisions, and you’ll find that the 156 has more momentum than lighter bullets. If you’re shooting s large animal, I would not hesitate to use that bullet…not for one second.
If you’re shooting in brush, you can’t do much better. Pointy bullets moving fast can be deflected considerably by leaves and twigs, but blunt nosed bullets moving slowly tend to deflect very little.
Its a MOOSE hunting bullet. Moose is big,All those Scandinavian 156gr 6.5mm bullets are great in terms of terminal impact, and they can be very accurate. The main issue is wind drift.
They move about twice as far as a 143 ELD-X, which begins to be an issue even at 200 yards.
For example: 10mph wind at 90 degrees = 5.5" @200 yd & 14" @300 yds.
