Antelope bullet choices for bigger gun

In my group that's going out west, two will be using a 30-06, what bullet would you recommend? Has to be factory ammo, as they don't reload, I was thinking a 150 grain Nosler Ballistic tip

I'd narrow the list by what shot the best.

I think you are in the right bullet weight and a Winchester ballistic silver tip, the swift Sirocco Hornady SST, and Nosler ballistic tip.

Antelope aren't very big, nor are they that tough. Any good factory bullet will work.

As mentioned above, the one your gun shoots best would be the best choice.

150 gr nosler ballistic tip is fine. Don't overlook the Hornady SST's.

Shoot the same bullet that you are already shooting from the 06. If it shoots good that is
