I'm planning on reloading a deer bullet for 30-06 this year. I have used various factory ammo in 30-06 for 20+ years with good luck. Just seeking real world hunting advice.
Softpoint, I used them in my 06 and .300 Win Mag for years. They did great. Only problem was on one elk I shot real close in the shoulder it fragmented out of the .300. That was asking a bit much out of it. The elk only went about 35 yards and piled up anyway.Soft point or hollow point? I have been wanting to try both.
I've used many bullets over the years and while not the most accurate of the ones I tried, the plain ole 150gr Hornady Interlock is my favorite all around bullet...plus they are cheap!
My go to powder for the 06 is IMR 4064
