Well I got our cow hunt booked in Northern NM for December. I really would like to shoot my 6.5x47 "tactical" rifle which is pin-point accurate. I push the 140gr Berger Hunt VLD at 2900 fps, which is really close to what I see a lot of 30-06 150gr bullets run. The smaller caliber has a better sectional density for penetration, at which point the VLD will do it's job. Only found a couple of reports but all gave great results, even at longer ranges than I plan (500 yd max). What say you?
