What is your favorite .30-06 deer handload? Bullet, brass, powder & charge? Standard or magnum primer? Just curious. I promise not to tell the deer! :-X
You are absolutely correct....all the standard bullets from Sierra, Hornady, Speer, Remington and Winchester work fine on deer. Place any 150-180gr bullet in the right spot and the freezer is full.Most folks want to go 'premium' these days, but to be honest, most any ole expanding .308 tip is going to cause ole mossy horns a bad day.
Looked it up and I'm loading 54.2 grains, not sure what the velocity is because I did not chronograph my 30-06 but the book says about 2666FPS so up here at my elevation It's surly at 2700. Nothing to sneer at, that same bullet Molly coated in my 300WM, magnum primer and a much larger dose of the same powder is traveling at 3017FPS. Accuracy is very good with both rifles.janott said:Sierra SPBT @ 180 grains in front of a load of IMR4350 with a standard CCI LR primer.
