Re: 30-06 long range bullet

My best load for a 30-06 is the 165 gr Nosler Ballistic Tip. I use a Fed 210 M Primer with 50 gr. IMR 4064. I keep the rounds mag length. It's consistent, and accurate. Works great on Deer sized game.

For heavier bullets I'll go to the 300 Win Mag. Hope this helps.

    Over the years that I have hunted for deer or elk, I have found that the Hornady 165 gr, btsp works about the best. A lot flatter than the 180 grain bullets and the velocity is higher. But in the long run it dosen't matter for velocity or bullet weight as it is in shot placement. If you can't shoot from 200-300 yards then any thing past that you might be better off letting the animal walk away!

    180. If it is the same type, it will cut the wind better.
