PA - they make a 63 grain soft point that I've heard many people rave about - I bought some but haven't gotten to try them yet.  Even though as a soft point it doesn't have the best BC, it's pretty short for the weight and apparently shoots quite well out of .223 with slow twists (1-12, etc).  Supposed to work well from yotes up to deer & hogs.  What bullet type is the 65? 
One of God's greatest gifts to us is
the great outdoors - get out there
and enjoy it!
