This particular 6.5 CM ammo came all the way from the Czech Republic so you can turn any medium-size game into your trophy. It features a simple soft point bullet, which has a copper-zinc alloy jacket that leaves the tip of its solid lead core uncovered at the tip. At 156 grains the bullet is light enough to pass through a 21.75” barrel to hit a muzzle velocity of 2,444 fps. The bullet’s sleek ballistic profile and small boat tail help it conserve enough energy to ethically harvest a whitetail at ranges beyond 400 yards. Once the soft point’s tip connects with the hide, it will deform, flatten out, and inflict a wider wound channel than a standard FMJ or HPBT could have managed. The bullet’s tough gilding metal jacket doesn’t completely prevent fragmentation, but it promotes sufficient weight retention to ensure penetration to the vital zone.
Sellier & Bellot sounds like a foreign company – and they very much are, because they’re headquartered over 4,000 miles away from our east coast – but they still use reloadable brass cases and noncorrosive Boxer primers just like all the American companies.
