I know there has been some discussion on this already, but I have my own niche to fill and need help. I'm loading for a Bolt 30.06 and I'm looking for a bullet that will do triple duty if possible. My main focus is for moose, then caribou then brownies. I don't take many shots out past 200 yards. I'm not a bear hunter per se, but would like a bullet that will perform if needed. I'm thinking 180gr here unless there is a compelling argument against it. I'm also looking at cost, I want to stock up on as many as I can afford. So I need to choose one bullet.
Currently I'm looking at the Nosler Partition vs their Accubond. Is the Partition that much better? How about the E-tip lead free? These are pricy and would like to know if they are really that much better than Sierra or Hornady
Next is Sierra 180 SBT Gameking vs Hornandy 180 BTSP with the Interlock ring. These are both half the price of Noslers. What are your opions of these? I know it's a question like what do you use for bear defense and I'll get lot's of answers, but I need to see some specific opinions and examples. Plus it's winter and we need to keep this forum active!
So, in short... one 180gr bullet from above and the most economical way to do it.
