I am a novice antelope hunter and will be going to Wyoming my first time this Oct.
I have a Ruger 30.6 and wanted to know your opinion with what size (125, 150, etc) to use in the wide open areas for antelope.
Growing up in the East, am not used to taking shots over 250 yards. Because of this, I am inclined to experiment with a 125 gr in hopes of obtaining a flatter trajectory and possible maximizing my performance at longer distances. Unfortunately, I am also not as familar with this lower weight bullet or with the longer ranges aand will have to do some practicing if I should consider employing either into my hunt. I have been practicing with a 150 gr nosler tip/boat tailed with some prety good success at 250 yards. What are your recommendations for Western Antelope hunting
and using a Ruger 30.6 rifle? Do you recommend the 125 gr? Do you know where I can obtain an aerodynamic (sharp tip and boat tailed 125 gr slug)? Do you recommend a 150 gr? Etc? Etc?
Thanks for your help
