    30.06 target rounds

    What is a good general purpose bullet to reload for targets?
    Manufacturer/weight etc?
    I have only reloaded hunting rounds so far.

    You will need to try a few anyway to find what your rifle likes

    No point going light IMO

    Thanks tackb. The weight suprises me I thought it would be heavier.

    No point in going too heavy if it's just 600m tops , the 30/06 was designed round the 150g bullet so chances are your twist will suit that weight and anyway the modern 155's are superior to the old 175's at long range.

    truthfully 600m isn't that far , pretty much any target bullet should be fine !

    60 gr of powder and it will chuck 200gr of lead, why not?

    agreed it's only 600.....but add a swirling 15 mph wind and any help is help....
