Thanks Allen. I've given some thought to the lead-free variety like the Barnes, E-Tip, and GMX. My thoughts are that the 30-06 doesn't produce enough velocity with the heavier 165 and 180 to warrant them.
I'm trying to decide between a bonded bullet in the 165-180 gr class. The new Speer Deep Curl line looks enticing since they are a bonded bullet priced in the standard cup and core class.
Hopefully I can get a chance to shoot this rifle next weekend. I should have my scope mounted by then.
