    I use 150gr bullet loads in my .30-06 which I use for deer and antelope. If I used it for bigger game like Elk I'd probably switch to a 165gr bullet. Right now I use a .300wm with a 180gr bullet for Elk.

    I agree 150 gr in 30-06 a good choice for antelope and deer. Killed my 1st elk with 30'06 180 gr.

    I used a 180 gr tsx on a goat and had zero meat loss. Hole in and same hole size out! Behind the shoulder with my 30-378. I have seen NBT's hit behind the shoulder with basketball exit wounds!!!! Stick with a heavier well made bullet and make a good shot.

    Overall a 220gr will do less damage than a 150gr. It has a lot to do with speed when it comes to tissue damage.

    So kind of a side topic here then. A lot of you guys have been talking about the BT having issues with massive exit wounds (not something I want) but I've got a box of these tips. I like the way they shoot out of my gun, but now I'm positive I'm not going to use them on the antelope...what COULD I use this bastards for? So far I've got target practice but that seems like a bit of a waste to just send 'em down range at targets. Any thoughts?

    Trade them for a box of the good old Hornady 150 or 165gr interlocks and never look back.

    Wolves! They would be great for wolves!!!!

The other one's got a rattlesnake With a simple statement made "Don't tread on me" is what it says and I'll take that to my grave. Because this is me.

    recommended grn bullet from a 30-06?

    This is a great thread guys. When I rifle hunt my 30-06 is my bread and butter but when it comes to antelope I have always shot my 243. After reading this stuff I feel more comfortable with my ol trusty 30-06 not blowing away meat with the right bullet
