Since I just had both of my knees replaced I will not have any time to build up a good deer load for his rifle. We hunt in PA and his stand over looks a 300 yard plus view. He got a 9 point out of that stand a year ago which he dropped at over 150 yards using his 700 in 30-06.
He wants to shoot a 168 grain bullet out of his new 700. I am looking for suggestions for factory 168 grain ammunition that will perform well in his 16.5 inch barrel.
I suggested Winchester Silver Tips. Any other suggestions?
Any and All Suggestions will Greatly Be Appreciated!
Dane, I've used these on deer before out of my old custom .308 with a 20" M24 barrel on it, and believe it or not, they worked awesome! Shot great even out to 1K.
That's the only place I find them for sale, other than my local LE distributor (which I buy from them), but if I were you, I'd buy a couple boxes and give them a shot.
If those don't work for you, I'd give these a try:
