What is the favorites on this forum for that caliber? Thanks! :topjob:
In truth its hard to beat this oldie
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
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.
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!
.....I like John Noslers theory that getting some "bullet shrapnel" going on inside of a critter in random directions is a good way to make a humane quick kill......
