Alright... I have 170 grain federal amunition which would you prefer between those two cuz I think the higher in grains the better but I dont really know I mostly hunt small game with shotguns and im new to rifles

In 30*30 I prefer a 150gr or lighter.

TheHunter100 12-18-2011 02:43 AM

And why would you say that does it make a diffrence in speed, acurracy, etc....

A lighter bullet travels faster, drops less, but loses energy faster.

A 130 or 150gr bullet is plenty for deer.

Do you have a specific brand that you would u recommend n what bout on hogs I should stick to higher grains (sorry for all the questions just wanted to know)

Same for hogs. I shoot the cheap blue box federal from Walmart in 30-30.
