So I just had a light'ish 6 Creed built for a deer, antelope, coyote rifle. It is just heavy enough that I should be able to make some long shots with it. My match rifle is a long, heavy 6SLR. It shoots phenomenally; I sandbag it at 3000fps with DTACs. I used it to bag an antelope this year bc this rifle wasn't ready yet. Wasn't really impressed with the DTAC as a hunting bullet, but wasn't expecting impressive results either. I've shot eastern whitetail with 175SMKs, 130 JLKs going 3050, also not impressive. Killed three whitetail with 100gr Nosler BT's going 2760 from a 6.5 Grendel bolt gun. They did the best job to date. The JLKs were overly explosive, the SMKs penciled thru and pulled some lung out but the animal still ran almost a 1/4 mile. The Ballistic tips mushroomed perfectly, didn't damage meat, shot decently well, came to rest just on the opposite side under the hide. So now the conundrum. I had planned to shoot 103 ELDXs in this rifle. If I could buy factory Precision Hunter ammo and seat the loaded rds to depth, even better. And 87VMAXs. I put 85 rds thu this barrel with 103s. It will not shoot them better than .7". Most configurations about a MOA. I tried 4350, 4831SC, and RL26. Not having it. I tried 95 HVLDs. Nothing going. Then I tried 105 HYBs, 108 BTs, 95 Classic Hunter, 95 Nos BTs, and 87 VMAXs. The long story short is that this barrel doesn't like anything with a VLD nose. It shot the 108s, 95 Classic Hunters, and 87 VMAX well. That's it. Every VLD style bullet to include the HYBRIDs wanted to make me throw this barrel in the dumpster behind a Wendy's. So, for a longer range custom build, it looks like my choices are traditional bullet shapes in the 90gr range. Not super happy about that. I was planning on running a weak charge behind a higher BC, no-**** hunting bullet. Ultimately, something I could tag antelope with out here, but also hunt whitetail on my dad's farm back east. Blow coyote up with VMAXs. Best I got right now is the 95gr Classic hunters going 3000fps, shooting in the .2's for three round groups. I'm tempted to try the 88gr Hammers even tho their BC is low. I really wanted a light'ish, long range competent laser. Doesn't look like its going to happen with my bullet choices. I feel like I have a pretty good knowledge of competent 6mm hunting bullets, but what say you? What actual 100gr + 6mm hunting bullet with a BC over .485 and a traditional nose am I forgetting about?
