I would estimate that 95% of my shooting has been ground squirrels in Ca with a Ruger 223 with 55 gr ballistic tips. When I moved to Ky and bought a small farm with deer on it I automatically reloaded with the Nosler out of habit. I used a Savage 7mag for the deer and never had to take a second shot on any. When looking for a 6.5 creedmore load I see a lot more Bergers and Hornady bullets mentioned. Am I missing something useing the Nosler ballistic tips for bigger game?
