For many years I've used a 6mm Rem for all of my deer hunting with great results and lately I've gotten a wild hair to go back in time so I bought a mod 94 30-30. I was wondering if any of you who use that caliber have a favorite brand and weight of ammo? Not for accuracy particularly as I know that's an individual gun thing but I was interested in your opinion of terminimal performance in your particular gun of any brands and weight? Thanks for any suggestions, John
I have dropped many deer with Rem. 170 gr. Also I handload and use Hornady 150 and 170 gr loads over 3031 powder. One of the best rounds I have used in factory and handloads is Rem 170 gr hollow point.
Thanks to all of you guys for your answers so far. I'm surprised that everyone seems to go for the 170 gr bullets in whatever brand you prefer. I'll be looking for more of your favorites to be posted. John
Do any of you who replied or any who haven't seen any major difference in range between the 150's and the 170's? Not particularly length of range or bullet drop but in damage done at reasonable shooting distances with the two bullet weights?
