        Someplace I have some 30'06 cartridges that I loaded with 250 gr. Full Metal Jacketed bullets that I removed from old .300 H&H cartridges.

              You piqued my interest. I didn't know anyone still loaded something that heavy. I looked around further and saw this:

              A 240 grain bullet specifically for the 30-06. Cool!

                Those heavies would be awesome for busting brush with iron sights, but if I had a scoped rifle I would want a lighter weight with it's flatter trajectory.
                I like the 165gr-180gr range, but I know little compared to previous posters.

                        Yeah this will be in a rifle sighted rifle, no scope. I do plan on having a long range heavier caliber thumper with a killer scope, but that is of a different subject

                          busting or beating brush is hiking in thick cover where a scope would be unnecessary

                            I will be starting out with the .30/06 first and when funds are available go heavy, but the 06 will be my walking gun.

                              Sorry, by heavies I meant 200-240gr bullets in your 30/06. Not get a heavier gun. IMO that 30/06 is as heavy as you need, but some disagree.
