Bullets for 6.5 Creedmoor

Hi fellas, I'm loading 120gr. Sierra Pro Hunter bullets in my Browning X bolt 6.5 CM and they are working good for deer hunting. But I'm wondering if anybody is using something better, all my shots are under 300 yards.

Little soft for a creedmor but I would think they would be fine for deer. At close range avoid heavy bones. They work well out of a grendel but thats around 2500 fps.

I shoot those and 120 grain Nostler BT out of a Remington .260 and a Ruger 77 .260 never had a problem with accuracy or killing deer at any range in a lot of different states to include my home state of KS. Dropped a 192 inch KS buck at 250 yards with one. Have killed over 30 bucks and all DRT. No matter where I hit them in the chest or neck. Use them in my daughters .260 and she. Has now killed 10 or so and they all DRT never even a step. Hard to top that performance. I also have a custom 6.5/06 with Douglas medium sporter airgauged barrel. I shoot 100 grain BT and at 3300 fps it vaporizes them. Killed on at known distance of 450 yards. DRT. A lot of guys will say you need a heavier bullet me and kids have about 65 to 70 whitetails killed and some west bruisers. None took more than a step ? Why change know. Son killed moose in AK last year with 7mm-08 took 5 steps fell over.
