I get fragmentation from the 243 and I don't with the 06. Why is this so?
The 243 bullet is designed for deer sized animals. The 30/06 bullet is designed for elk sized critters. It has a thicker jacket that holds it together better. If you switch to 150 grain bullets in the 30/06 you will likely experience similar results to the 243.
