Barnes 127gr LRX is the best i've found. Reloaded the 127 for a while before I figured out the factory load was just as accurate. Good luck finding it right now though.

The federal trophy copper factory load left a doorway wide blood trail on my dad's deer last year. I bought the 120gr etips to reload because of that.

I’ve shot every lead free ammo I could find in this caliber for the last 5 years and Barnes 127gr LRX has no rival. Best hands down. Just glad I bought a big ol box a couple years back. Sure hope this buddy can find some!

Good too hear I have two boxes of the 127 and the 120 Barnes, drove around for a couple hours trying to find it for hunting season. I’m hoping it performs great!

I've used the PVA Cayuga copper bullets, they have very high BC's, more like a match bullet. And they are very effective on animals.

Have you ever tried them at say 50-100 yards on animals ( deer, elk) preferably ? 6.5 creedmoor

I have not, but PVA has shot a bunch of deer with them. Im sure he could give you some additional feedback. After having used them, I would absolutely use them again on deer or elk at those ranges.

Whatever you can find on the shelf. I finally found some Barnes 120gr TTSX after looking for 5 months and was limited to 2 boxes. Just enough to break in/sight in my new rifle but not enough to do some quality practice with :rolleyes:

I've got a box of 120 TTSX bullets listed in the classifieds if you reload.

Wildly expensive but in stock

I have 2 boxes of those . Pricy, going to sight it in with Barnes 120’s today, saving those for hunting season, I’ll let y’all know how it runs through my Weatherby Vanguard Meateater with a Leupold VX-Freedom 6-18x40.
