For the 30-06 I like the 165gr Sierra GameKing and the
165gr Nosler Partition. Recently I have been testing the
165gr AccuBond to replace the Partition mostly because of

In the .223 I'm shooting a 55gr Sierra GameKing #1390 or
60gr Partition.

I've been using the basic Remington .30 caliber 150 grain
PSPCL for over 45 years. It's spotty availability as a
reloading component has compelled me to switch bullets.
At this point I've decided to go with the Sierra Pro
Hunter. For our 125-175 pound whitetails I'm confident
that it will suffice.

Swift A-Frames almost across the board. I am a penetration and controlled expansion nut. My only exception is in the 300 H+H where I shoot 200 gr. Barnes LRX BT that shoot wonderful groups with all the above qualities. In this rifle I could not get the A-Frames to group.

As long as there is lead in the air there is hope>

For me Barnes 100gr TTSX in my Stevens 25-06 is more then I could ask for.
Then again the same load in my Remington 25-06 isn't even close.
