What is a good long range ammo out to 350 yards for a 3006?

Just about any 30-06 load is plenty capable to 350 yards.

Yep.
At that point it is more about the shooter and then the rifle.

I shot deer up to 220, but the i cant get a pass through shot . it hit both lungs and hard to get a blood tail unless you shoot them 3 or 4 times. My gun really likes winchester ammo really well, just hate to a different brand this time of the year

Hornady's new Superformance loads with the GMX bullet, or anything loaded with the Barnes bullets should do really well at those distances. Those bullets are less sensitive to the variations in velocity for long range hunting.

That what I'm using a rem 700. I got a box of ballistic silvertips. I shot a 180 lb. 130 class 8 pt at 180 yards . It did a number on his insides .

My 700 seems to do well with the nosler 165 accubond trophy loads, picked some up at sportsmans warehouse on a great deal. $23 a box.

I would try and stay around 150 grain or less.
