  • Bullet weight and type. Help

    Hey everyone I am shooing a 30-06 and am currently using 165 grain fusion ammo. I don't reload and won't be able to. With that being said, which factory ammo would you guys recommend for best accuracy and what grain out of 150 165 180. For an all around hunting round

    What will you be hunting and at what distance? I like a lot of the newer fancier bullets but I have never lost an animal with an old lead soft point bullet. They just work!

      Sorry I should have mentioned. I wanted to be able to hunt deer and elk. So a bullet that can be a happy median between both and looking to shoot to 500 maybe 600

        For deer, any of the 150 and heavier will work fine. For elk, you'll want something heavier and tougher. My favorite for the '06 is the 180grn Accubond. Excellent bullet design and very accurate.

        Shortly before World War I, the German Kaiser was the guest of the Swiss government to observe military maneuvers. The Kaiser asked a Swiss militiaman: "You are 500,000 and you shoot well, but if we attack with 1,000,000 men what will you do?" The soldier replied: "We will shoot twice and go home."

          Ok and I heard that a 180 compared to a 165 grain, the 180 won't be affected by wind quite as much? Is that true?

            Yes, but that will only be noticeable over a long distance.

                My Uncle used to used 220gr Remingtons in His .30-06, forget which ones exactly, for deer in Virginia. A bit much I agree but it's funny as sh*t to see a deer barrel-roll when hit by one of those puppies.

                I was loaded up one day sitting in a field, 180gr's in my .30-06, and didn't see a thing all day....except this brown fur ball running across the field at about 100 yds.

                That whistle-pig had no chance, He stood up and I popped him right between the shoulder blades. DRT.

                Love that caliber, wish my 700P was an -06

                    What a crock of shit. I have never seen or heard of that happening. Of course, I only see a thousand or so rifles a year with canted bases, so maybe I don't get out enough......

                          Sounds like a winner to me, the 'boss' would likely do some custom work on me if I walk into the house with another firearm...
