For hunting I had loaded some 85gr partitions which worked well in the mag, but never had the chance to try it on game. A friend of mine actually ended up with both. Great cartridge and platform.
Nothing but Junk LOL

I actually have 3 6x45 The 2 Sako A1 and a Cooper and have one in a Rem 600 6x47 (6mm.222RemMag). I've also owned another 6x47 also rechambered and rebored by Ron Smith on a Rem 700 action. At one time the 6x47 was a premier bench rest cartridge.
The 2 on the Sako A1 really shoot well with 58gr Hornady . The one DG built also does very well with 80gr Winchester.

PM me for more info
