I am starting to do some loads for both my wifes and I's 30-06 for caribou. I have never used an 06 much since I have always hunted with a 300 WBY. My question is how effective is the 168g Barnes TSX on caribou or even moose if we stumble upond one? My though is that the Barnes is a tough bullet and coupled with some good velocity may make a good load out to 400 yards for caribou and maybe 200 yards on moose. Am I completly wrong or is this close to what to expect. I will move up to 180g if I need but wanted a very flat shooting round.
Also, how is everyones experience with Varget loaded for 06? This is my favorite powder for my 22-250 and does real well in an 25-06 also. Thanks guys, I appreciate the help and love the feedback on this forum.
