Thanks for the reply. Was wondering how this would work for a deer load. May not have ti experiment much more with this rifle then as I have a couple boxes loaded and ready to go.Congratulations on your 6.5 Creedmoor. The 129 ABLR load looks ready to go. My wife has a Kimber Hunter 6.5 CM and shoots lights out with the 129 ABLR. That bullet drops deer in their tracks.
