Any preferred loads you guys like for .30-06 that'll put them down on the spot? I don't like the idea of one climbing a tree after me.
I used 52 grains of H4350, 200 grain Nosler Partitions, and CCI 200 primers on my one and only black bear. 165 or 180 grains should work just fine, I just had the 200 grain bullets on the reloading bench. I shot him through both shoulders and he was DRT. CNS shots put them down quick and hard.
