95 grain Ballistic Tips and SSTs have worked great at my camp.

85 grain Sierra SP Varminter, not the BTHP. BTHP too tough for my liking.

100 grain Sierra Gameking or a Nosler 95 grain Partition.

Not really a nickles difference in the 3.

My next kill with my 6mm will be with a 90 grain Ballistic Tip.

Lots of good advice already.

For me, I’ve had success with the following:
95 gr NBT - this is one tough bullet and “hog approved” also.
100 gr Interlock
100 gr Sierra Gameking

I couldn’t get the 80 gr TTSX to shoot worth a darn, and given the prices/ perceived performance improvement vs the others I abandoned future attempts to make these work.

You guys that use interlocks, flat base or boat tails?

Does it make a difference?

I ask because both are readily available. I've had good luck with flat base interlocks in my 308.

They don’t make a 100gr flat base in .243 anymore.

With that said, I’ve had better accuracy luck with flat base than boat tail in 30-06, but only marginally. Also .277 130 flat base shoot great and not available in bt in 130 gr, but in 140 gr.
