Ok, well..I want to go yote hunting with my 30-06, but dont want to have the recoil of my 180 grainers.. So i was thinking of going with something lighter and flatter trajectory... So i was thinking of getting my uncle reload some of my once shot brass for either 110grain hp or v-max bullets... I have some 125grn managed recoiled, but i can't hold a good group with them at 100 yards even
So the question is 110 grain hp varminter from Sierra or 110 grain v-max's from Hornady? Also would these "full" powered brass possibly shoot better groups than my managed recoils?

Anyone have any experience with them getting shot from an 06?

Good luck, I never could get anything less than 130 gr to shoot worth a darn in a 06. Even the 130 weren't what I consider a varmint group.

I had a 30-06 that only liked light bullets. I could feed that one 110 grain Sierra's and it loved it. I much prefer a .30-06 that likes heavier bullets though.

We can all sit here and tell you what works for "us", in "our" rifles.

The only way you're going to know what works best in "yours" is to load some and get to the range.

Both are quality bullets, and both will be fine for coyotes.

Cold Bore that was COLD!!! But spot on. No one will ever know until they shoot them out of their gun.

130 Hornady SP and Speer 125gr TNT shoot well out of a 7600 Carbine and a Tikka T3.
