.30-06 is my favorite as well. I've been running 165 gr. Core-lokts out of mine and it seems to like it. The deer, on the other hand, do not.

My favorite whitetail round. I also have a 7mag that I love. But they cost more to shoot. I bought a remington 700 and shoot winchester power point 150 gr and have had great luck with them

Not my favorite round...lol
I'm curious why most like the 165 gr vs the 150 gr.?
Is it the accuracy, or just preference?

Some years ago somebody done a lot of research & determined the 168g or maybe it was the 165g was a better choice for over all energy ,accuracy & flat shooting 150g vs 180g. I have shot deer with 150g & 165g & at the distances I couldn't tell any difference but Im sure as the range gets longer a person could. I shoot 150g most of the time in my 300wm,less recoil & plenty for deer

My hunting rifle is a TC Encore 30.06, hence my screen name, and I shoot the 165gr Federal Fusion. Its a great cartridge and can't go wrong with taking one to the woods.
