30-06 long range bullet

Going sheep and elk hunt in high country very steep angles good chance of long range
shooting. Shooting a 30-06 and 165 or the 180gr bullet are the choices.
Which one would you select for both.

I have had really good luck with the 190gr JLK. I know it is a little heavier than what you listed but I think you will find the decrease in MV to not matter in the long run.

I have had great luck with a 168gr VLD out of a 30-06. the VLD is a go to bullet in all my rifles.

Re: 30-06 long range bullet

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.

Re: 30-06 long range bullet

I have two 30.06.
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..
