Re: 30-06 hunting bullet
The 178 AMAX is a fine medium game bullet. Stay away from elk and similar game with it but up to big mule deer, it is great. If you need a more solid bullet for the bigger stuff, the 180 ACCUBOND will fill the need.
Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (where the shot goes, how big the group is, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.
