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.

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.
