Re: 30-06 factory ammunition for mule deer???
Hello and welcome to the Long range hunting community! I always preferred the 165 grain class bullet for the old 06 but it really doesn't make much difference if you are going to shoot to 300 only. What you will want to do is get a couple boxes of ammo and shoot them. See what your rifle likes best and stick with it. A well placed 150 grain bullet will do a better job than a poorly placed 200 grain bullet. I never did have luck with the interbonds by hornady. I am a Nosler fan, but every rifle has it's own "taste". Good luck with the hunt, Mark.
I used to re-load but now I "hand-load".
