Default 6.5 Creedmoor hunting ammo?

Can anyone recommend a factory hunting round for 6.5 Creedmoor?

Hornady ELD-M is what my rifle likes and they work extremely well. Have seen 3 deer need follow up shots with the ELD-X's.

I tried 129gr sst, 130gr vld, 140gr Elite hunter, 120gr gmx. My rifle shoots the 140gr Berger Elite Hunters into bug holes. I'll be hunting with 140gr Cooper Creek loaded bergers Suppressed this fall.

Been experimenting with my new Ruger American Predator and pretty much any Hornady rounds have been fantastic. The 143 grain ELD-X shoot really well, I also have some 129 grain SST which I'm sure shoot similar. The only rounds I've tried that didn't shoot as well were the 125 grain Winchester XP, but even those were about 2.5" 3 shot group. My rifle has been well under .5" MOA with Hornady loads. Probably going to stick with the 120 grain GMX. I thought about shooting the match grade stuff, but I want to stick with a hunting round and the performance I'm getting is similar to match grade anyways.
