I shot my first deer with the 6.5 143 gr eldx a week ago and it acted like I missed it. It was approximately a 75 yd shot through the vitals. Deer trotted about 50 yds and stopped so I shot it again.
After gutting the vitals inside were mush with one hole at a angle and the other was a high shoulder shot, both pass throughs.
I'm not criticizing the effectiveness of the bullet just stating what my experience is so far.
I plan to shoot a few more later in the season and compare results.

Pretty impressive holes.
I've been very trigger conservative so far but plan to get a few doe soon.
My brother shot two doe @ 250, 275 yds with great results.

They go with the Creedmoor like peas and carrots in everything I've seen
