    Speer Gold Dot 120 or 140 are awesome performers in 6.5 Creedmoor.

    Looking for this video for a while now. You are the first to provide an objective evaluation.

    Great format for a video. It gives everyone with a caliber with medium velocities like the 6.5 a good idea for their selection. For instance, I shoot a 7mm-08 and my preferred bullet is the 140 Trophy Bonded Tip. Pretty close to the Terminal Ascent. My load reaches 2785 and thats good enough for my hunting style. BTW I wouldn’t hesitate using it on black bear or even moose hunting with strict shot selection.

    My favorite by far is the 127 LRX. I donโ€™t shoot much past 300, and havenโ€™t killed anything much over 200 with it. When I hunt elk I use the 270 WSM and generally limit my yardage to 350. I think my farthest shot has been about 325.

    ๐Ÿค  The Swift Sirocco II 130 grain 6.5 mm bullet has a B.C. of 0.571 and is bonded! Try That! ๐Ÿ˜œ

    I think the 6.5 creedmor and it’s peers are a good minimum standard for elk. You can and should limit the range to 300 yards and use as heavy and as strong of a bullet as possible, and be wary of hard quartering shots. But a well placed shot from a creedmor will be much more effective than a poor shot from a much larger caliber. I think that it really shines for shooters who for whatever reason are going to be recoil sensitive.

    I’m able to push a 127gr Barnes lrx to approximately 2850fps fairly easily using Superformance powder and Fed 210 large rifle match primers. Works well on deer sized game within reasonable distances, 300yds and under!
    Also getting .35 moa groups using the Weatherby Vanguard 2.

    120gn and 140gn. Speer Gold Dot. Are great bullets.

    Good video on what a paper punching 264" cartridge will do on ballistic gelatin. If someone is looking for a hunting cartridge, there are literally gobs of better choices.

    My buddy asked me what I would recommend for his 12 year old son for his first deer rifle. I told him a 30-06 or 7mm rem. He was NOT expecting to hear that. I explained that his 12 year old with already size 13 feet was going to be big enough to eat hay in 3 years. I also told him it was a mistake to go 6.5 cr or 243 as he was really limiting his down range energy and range he could ETHICALLY shoot game.

    Well, he bought that gangly kid a Tikka T3x Rough-tech in 7mm rem. It’s a 3/4" moa gun and comes with a muzzle brake so it recoil like a 308.

    That was 6 months ago. He shot his first deer with it in November, and I hadn’t seen him since. Well, that "little guy" was nearly looking me eye to eye now. He told me how much he loved his gun and how he couldn’t wait to hunt elk with his old man…..I just smiled and told him he definitely had the rifle ๐Ÿ’ชto get r’ done๐Ÿ’ช.

    Great video and great channel!

  16. Brent Brand on May 12, 2023 at 4:26 am

    Love the content and the pragmatic approach. If you haven’t planned to, please put together a similar video with the 6mm ARC. Thanks and keep it up!

    My wife and I have a 6.5×55 and a 260 Rem. I agree the 130 gr class is perfect for this class of rounds. I like the 130 gr Accubond probably the most but always try new bullets because it’s fun to experiment.

    Speaking of hard to find bullets, the new Speer Impact looks great and currently comes in 6.5, 277 and 308. Maybe you can find some and add them to your tests. Thanks for all you do!

    Mak-90 AK 4 bullets only 250 yards Hits plate 3/8 steel almost went through https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N9wQexL7CTI&t=4s

  19. spacepathfinder1 on May 12, 2023 at 4:34 am

    try and comment NORMA Swift Scirocco II 6,5 Creedmoore – 8,4g/130gr. I love to use hammer hunter 124gr, cutting edge maximus 125gr, norma bondstrike 143gr.

  20. Troy Johnson on May 12, 2023 at 4:36 am

    Glad I found you guys..been using PowerPoint ammo for decades in other calibers. But I’ve been researching a bergara b14 ridge in 6.5 cm. And most of my shots are under 200 yards..

    Or you could save yourself some money and eliminate everything from 2 to 3 all the way up through 300 Winchester magnum by buying yourself a 30 ought 6 Springfield. Feel free to prove me wrong tell me anything that the 6.5 can do better then the thirty-ought-six. That list is going to consist of absolutely nothing.

  22. Bob D on May 12, 2023 at 4:40 am

    Bueno info, thanks for the video.

  23. john kader on May 12, 2023 at 4:43 am

    Having real world testing and analytics to make these selections is very helpful. Nice job!

  24. Erik Larson on May 12, 2023 at 4:44 am

    Would you use the same bullets for 6.5 PRC as well?
