    Have been using the 6 XC a little now, finding it surprisingly efficient even on decent bodied deer. Must've shot 20-25 by now and the 105gr bullets seems to do the same job as any 6,5.

    The little 6mm bullets tend to do great on deer sized game IMHO. What bipod is that you’re using?

    This is RPS Titanium - Rifle Precision System. Got it way back when bipod options was a bit more limited, and for the specific purpose of having a bipod tall enough to shoot over clearcuts.

    Yes, I'm liking the 6mm very much. Sadly, finding them in stock is a bit difficult over here, always mailorder with the added cost.
