I've been using the 147 eldm out if the 6.5 cm and even at 2700 fps muzzle velocity it's still been brutal on impact and blood shot. We've killed 3 animals with it this year and two were blood shot very bad. The worst was my stepdads cow elk at 470 yards. He hit her in the base of the neck from a broadside shot and she her whole side bloodshot. I mean it was very bad. Had to throw away alot of meat this year. Looking to see what you guys would recommend for a good bullet to remedy this but not give up too much bc. Also, considering a switch in 300 win from the 225 eldm for the same reasons. They both shoot great and are inexpensive but harsh on meat.
