Re: What bullet would you load in a 30-06 for hunting & long range precision shooting
For heavy Bullets, 190g Berger VLDs. Those 200g Gamekings and 208g A-max Bullets area good choice as well.
However, I've found that the .30-06 is at it's absolute best with a 165g Sierra Gameking. Very Flat shooting, it will kill it if you hit it .
I use these religiously out of my custom .30-06 AI with a Semi Bull 26" bbl. 168g shoot even better, and I killed a nice 4x4 Muley with the Bergers 2 yrs ago and they do a wonderful job as well, but the Sierras are more economical, and I'm rasing kids right now. and They shoot as good as the Bergers in my rifle.
