    What powders do you have at your disposal?
    Why are you shooting such a heavy, stout bullet at deer? ( 1800 fps at 500 yards, the minimum speed to open it up).

    I would load the 150-gr for deer, or 165 / 168 gr for boar. I have loaded the Barnes 150 TSX in the .308, and based on that experience with some conventional bullets and the same powder (RL-15), brass, primers and rifle, my guess is that 55.5 gr IMR-4350 for all three bullet weights in the .30-06 is the place I would expect to end up, beginning at 54.0 gr.

    Brian, remember with Barnes you can drop at least 1 bullet weight.

    You need to be a bit careful with pressures with the Barnes bullets. They recommend a seating depth of at least 50 thou off the lands. Combine this with the fact that a copper bullet is much longer than a standard lead one to be of the same weight and you start to get some very deep seating depths which reduces case volume and subsequently increases pressure.

    For UK deer I would look at the 130g or 150g. The 130g is fantastic in the 308

    I can second that for the 130g in 308! excellent performance, but has nearly all say, keep them well off the lands.
