Have been using a 06 sense the early 60ís mostly on mule deer and worked up loads using the Hornady 150 and 165 grain Spir Point. Have taken quite a few bucks and a few elk with those loads and they work well for deer and good for elk if you donít try to shoot to far. Iím now using the 180gr Accubond in that rifle and can actually shoot a better group with it and itís a better elk load.
In an accurate rifle either weight will do a good job if you keep them within their limits. The 180ís carry a little better with more energy.

An old browning bar with a leupold scope that use with bullets of 165 grains Sierra up to 300/350 meters and a reballed winchester pre 70 ( mauser action) with a Lothar Walter inox barrel 1:12 . I used the 165 graind, but in th epast year and now I used now only Sierra gameking 2160 SPBT at 824 meters/sec ( low velocity do not stabilize the bullet). ad it is accurate up to 600 meters and pheraps beyond
In Italy and in Ungarian last years I shooted 23 caprioli (like a white deer)and 3 daini (like a mule deer ). No one has done more than three steps..
