If you could only have one bullet for your 308 for target and dear hunting what would it be?

Thanks

    Welcome aboard.

    That's a little tough to answer. If i could only have one bullet for everything I guess it would be the only bullet that is left.

    That is pretty tongue in cheek. I know what you are saying, you want to simplify. I have been there as well. The more that I reload and tinker, the more different stuff I seem to need.

    When I only had a 30-06, I had one load. I shot a 180g Ballistic tip. Able to shoot anything on the the North American continent within reasonable distance. I have ammo cans full of it if I ever have to dig into the reserves.

    For target and deer? I'd choose a 165/168 grain class bullet. Probably the Nosler Accubond seconds they sell for cheap on the proshop website.
