I use the Sierra 180gr SPBT GK bullet. Using a less than max charge of H4350 am getting 2825fps. Taken 2 6X6 bulls with that load at distance of around 300 yards. Another bull was taken at 250yards with 180 partition and a spike at 50yards with the 165gr Sierra SPBT GK.Curious as to what folks are using. So many rifles seem to have a few bullets that are really popular - 300wm and the Berger 215, 6.5 PRC and the 156, etc. But the 30-06 doesn’t seem to have that hugely popular favorite bullet. Since there is such a huge selection of bullets, I would expect to see answers all over the map.
I wanted to shoot the Nosler 180 BT but I would get a flier a third of the time, Switched to Berger 185 VLD and it went away. With N560 I’m getting 2877 with this bullet and it should easily dispatch anything smaller than an elk, and could work for elk as well although it won’t be my primary elk gun.
What are other people shooting?
