6mm-06 reloading

i just bought a winchester model 70 in .270win and im going to have a 26in 6groove 1-8twist barrel put on chambered in 6-06. i want to shoot 90gr or higher. i was looking at the 90gr swift bullets or the 105gr or 115gr berger bullets for hunting blacktail deer and antalope. does anyone have a 6-06 shooting any of these bullets?

    I have a 6-06ackly. I shoot the 95gr vld. The gun has been used on 3 antelope 5 muledeer and one elk For the first 250 shots I was shooting reloader 22 57grs with federal 215 @3620fps. It shot great but for some reason it will not shoot now.

    I have a 243 Super Rock Chucker which is more or less a 6mm-06 AI. Mine has a 30" hart barrel with a 1:10 twist and will not shoot anything heavier that a 75gr bullet. I use H4381SC and am getting sub 1/2moa with 70gr SMK's at about 3800 fps.

    I also have a 243 Super Rock Chucker and tried the 95VLDs from berger and actually killed a deer at 300yds with it (dropped her in her tracks) but i was not happy with the 100 yard groups (around 1 inch) so i switched to the 90 grain Bergers. I have a 1-10 twist and the 95s reccomend a 1-9 so thats why i switched. The 90s reccomend a 1-10. I used the Hornady V Max for several years which worked great on deer also. My brother shot a deer with the 243 SRC at 550yards with the V Max bullet. Dropped her. Reloader 17 and H4350 are both good powders for this calliber.
