    what type and gr. shells do you prefer to shoot with a 30-06

  • #2
    A .30-06 is a versatile cartridge and can be used for many types of game. For deer I like Federal Vital Shock 165 gr. ballistic tip. With larger game I use Federal High Energy 180 gr. Nosler Partition because it has nearly identical velocity and drop when compared to the 165 gr. This allows me to use the same rifle for both deer and elk without haveing to resight my rifle.

      beware of the man with one gun /because he's usually very good with it . this also applies to the advise he gives pertaining to his choice of bullets. jgroover 's advise right on target.

        No matter what I shoot 165 gr. but I've tried several makes. For the money Winchester Super X work well and Remington Core Lockts are ok.

            My 30-06 is my primary deer rifle. I shoot 180 Core Lokts, a little on the heavy side for deer but it works for me.

              For me the .30-06 is a lot of fun to hunt with because there are so many factory loaded ammunition options available. If you want to have a hot 06’ go with Federal Premium loadings and a 180 grain bullet, you can feel the difference in power through the recoil the first time you fire your rifle. Remington still lists a 220 grain load if you really want to lob some weight from your rifle, I haven’t ever used that particular round. If you want a mild load to practice with use Remington’s Managed-Recoil ammunition with a 125 grain Core-Lokt pellet. Really the sky is the limit with the .30-06. Me personally, I shoot Remington’s 150 grain Core-Lokt PSP when I want to dust off my old 06’ during deer season. It does want I need it to do on deer, what more could I ask for.

                  It depends on the rifle. My Garand shoots 180 grain best and my 7400 likes 150 grain better.

                    That depends on what I'm hunting but typically, I prefer 150-180gr loads. different rifles with behave differently so find the load that your rifle likes the best in this range and see what she likes
