223-70gr Speer soft point. Put's them down everytime,very accurate shooting bullet.Good out to 200 yards for me.
25/06- 115gr Nosler C/T ballistic silvertip.Super accurate bullet.No problem out to 400 yards.
.308 calibers-168gr Nosler C/T ballistic silvertips.Just like the above,I rarely fire at game animals over 400 yards.

30-06 hornady a max 180 gr. Great for cutting through brush, good out to 500 yds if needed, and devastating performance on any critter found on this continent.

I would have to say 30-06 180 federal soft point is my favorite because almost everyone in my family uses one but I think im goin to bump it up next year to a 300 wsm with handloads

The A-Max bullets are designed for Target shooting,Not hunting game animals.And I've never seen a 180gr A-Max,I do Target shoot a bunch of the 168gr/178gr/and 208gr A-Max bullets in all of my 30 caliber weapons.

If you miss the deer and hit a tree, the tree falls over and gets the deer...

These are all great choices, I was just looking for different calibers from my 30-06, 308, 270, ect...

jjfuller1 10-16-2012 01:23 PM
