I grew up hunting the Ruby mountains, East Humbolt mountains, Mugollon Rim, Cedar Breaks, North Rim country. 30-06 with 180 gr Sierra spbt at 2850fps took every thing I could hold the sights on, from deer, cat and bear to Javelina and coyote. Sighted 4" high at 400 yards with a 6:00 hold on an 8" bull. I also used that same load for 1000 yard no-glass competiton.
We would load the 168s for rock chucks and such when in the lava beds.
Can you tell which one I prefer?
