The 6.5 is a penetrator by itself, but with either, I'd think any decent cup and core bullet will do you just fine. Remington and Hornady are my 2 favorites. While they're "cup and core" they're both locked with a ring around the jacket that makes them a bit better on weight retention. Even my .270 with Federal power-shok factory ammo with either of its cup and core bullets will go through an elk's neck and spine without blowing up. Heavy for caliber tend to penetrate farther within reason.
