On Dec 5 in southern Arizona, I killed this poor Coues Whitetail with 6.5 Creedmoor 120 GMX Superformance at about 200 yards. The bullet shoots about .5 MOA in my Kreiger barreled Remington 600, which I thought was surprisingly accurate for a solid bullet. The terminal performance was astonishing. While it's not hard to kill a 100 plus pound deer, that GMX fully penetrated the chest cavity at an angle (about a foot of deer), left a huge exit wound and flattened that deer.

Thanks for the support. That's my 1st kill with my 6.5 Creedmoor. I look forward to more. I'm amazed at that little cartridge which seems to basically put a .270 in a short action.
