Long Range with old cartridges
A friend and I are wanting to start working on some longer range shooting for a mule deer hunt next year. He purchased a Weatherby Back Country in 30-06 and I ended up scoring a Tikka T3 in .270win. I will be working up loads for both of these and would like some advise on which bullets to use. I'm thinking 600 yards is about the longest range we will be working up to. Would a 165gr bullet be the way to go in the 30-06? Accubond? E-tip? Berger?
As for my .270, I am looking at the 140 gr accubond, but I am open to suggestions.
I would like to shoot the Hornady SST in both for practice. Is this a good idea?
