Factory Ammo for 30-06
So, I'm pretty new here, this is my second post but, eh?
So a few weeks ago I picked up my dream gun. A brand new Winchester Model 70 sporter, caliber 30-06.
Man do I love it. The stock is absolutly beautiful, covered in fiddleback, the checkering is clean and crisp, and the finish is flawless. The new MOA trigger is amazing. No creep, no over travel, no slack. Breaks like glass. The bolt is the smoothest I've ever felt. I like it better than the finest Sako. I stuck leupold duel dovetail scope mounts on it, but unfortunately that's all the wife would let me splurge on. So currently it's wearing a Nikon Buckmaster 4-14 instead of the Vortex Viper I want. Oh well. Save some more $ I guess.
I have some hand loads I worked up I worked up for my ol pre 64 Winchester, they shoot about a minute in my new one, but here lately, I don't know why, I've really been getting into factory ammo. Just had surgery. Maybe it's the meds. Who knows?
So I picked up some Federal Premium's with the 165 Trophy Bonded Tip bullets, and some Hornady Superformance with the 165 SST's (they go 2960 fps, no foolin!!! I chronyed it!!!) The Trophy Bonded tips shot about 2 minutes, the Hornady's about a minute. So finally, here's the question. What factory ammo do you all like? I've never had good luck with cor-lokt's, inaccurate as hell. I'd like to try some 180 Oryx's from Norma, kind of exotic, but what the hell, right? What do you guys like? Favorite hand loads count too.
