I'd go with a Barnes LRX or Hammer bullet, forget target and "match" bullets on game.

Don't remember the charge, but worked up a load for a buddy with H4831. Took a while to find what it liked, but once I did it was just under half MOA.

For my 6.5 PRC I have had good results with the accubonds and H4831SC at about 2950fps.   I was told by some that if you push the accubond too fast at close range the will not hold up,  these people were hunting elk.  I have killed a few deer with my loading and the terminal performance has been fabulous.  The one bullet I recovered was a nice mushroom with about 68% weight retention at about 100 yards.   Lots of good bullets and powders for the 6.5 PRC and what you can do with them.

127 LRX with a case full of RL25 at 3200, kills great.
