I agree 100%. I had originally seated to the cannelure (no crimp) only to find out that my rifle didn't like it. I am fortunate that I have almost 200 of the Sierra 160's laying around but when they are gone, they are gone.It is so sad, that Sierra discontinued the 160 gr semi.
In my opinion, this was the best bullet availabe for the 6,5x54 MS
160 gr Hornady, also is ok.
In my experience, it is not necessary to seat it to the cannelure and crimp, because recoil is negligible.
6,5x54 MS and a 160grainer is a great combination in the field, especially when you want to deal with something bigger
