And I would try to convince MUP to use 165s instead of 150s in his Tikka, but he is too stubborn to listen \:D \:D

I use a 168 gr. Nosler Ballistic tip over H4350 in my 30-06. And before someone wants to bad mouth the ballistic tip, take look at a sectioned 168 and note how thick the jacket is. Not all ballistic tips are created equal.

From Left to Right:
7mm 120gr BT, 7mm 150gr BT, 7mm 140 AB, 30cal 168gr BT, 30cal 180gr BT.

Probably the most versitle cartridge out there for big game.... shoot anything from 130 gr all the way up to and over 220 gr bullets... It has been around so long because it works... 108 years to be exact.

many fine cartridges made from it... 20-06, 270, 35 Whelen, 338-08, but none as versitle as the original...

If I could only have one calibur for big game, it would be the 30-06.

30-06 is all you need for north American big game hunting with maybe the exception of big coastal grizzlies and brown bears.

Not a fan of the caliber either. But that's all my dad uses and we have tested a lot of bullets and different grains and I would go with a 165 grain bullet. As said above will kill anything and bullets are everywhere. And I love a browning bar so I don't blame you for picking one up.
