I'm going to report my findings.
Using the G7 standard, BC, and SD for calculating accuracy
1. Hornady SST
2. Hornady GMX
3. Nosler 100gr Part.
4. Nosler 95gr Part.
5. Speer GS

For penetration performance / Lethality

1. Nosler 100gr Part.
2. Speer GS
3. Hornady GMX
4. Nosler 95gr. Part.
5. Hornady SST

I used ballistic gelatin for performance data and fired groups onto paper from 100-300m

6mm Sierra GameChanger is very accurate in my Remington Model Seven. While the Nosler Partition is less accurate (slightly), it is a better whitetail bullet. However, given the chance I will use either bullet given the chance.
