What's your favorite weight bullet for your Aught Six?

180 for me. I've always had outstanding luck with that combo so why change.

I've used most of the weights I listed but I prefer the 150.

Doesn't matter really. The poll assumes you have one favorite weight.

I chose 165's but back before I could afford more than 1 rifle I was loading 110 gr for varmints and it was lethal

I have loaded 165's for years and many deer have fallen to thm from Rem. and Hornady. Have some Ballistic Tips loaded up and may use them if the .06 goes with me.
