I like to sit at the range and shoot paper for hours at a time. Any recommendations on a bulk bullet for the 30-06. I would still like it some what accurate but it will mostly be used for hittin paper. Hunting rounds will probably just be high end store bought ammo.

I like the 147 pulldown stuff. They shoot as good as Nosler in my rifle. They shoot tighter groups backward tho.

The Hornady FMJs have always been ok to me. Not the greatest in the world of course, but pretty good for FMJ.

Yes

They used to have other weights too but supplies have been dwindling since I bought my 125 and 150 grainers.

Id like to get more soon if $$ allows

Widener's (http://www.wideners.com/index.cfm) have very good prices on bulk bullets. I buy from them often.

These are Privi Partisan bullets and if you have a 1 in 10 twist, they shoot great, better than GI surplus. Very well made bullets.

Look around on Gun Broker for M80 147g or M2 150g USGI pulled bullets. Its not too difficult to find for 14 cents a round. I prefer the m2 to the m80s (better neck tension, more accurate in my experience) but the M80 are much more common. If you are doing high volume shooting I suggest sticking with 150g - it will not beat up your bolt, barrel or shoulder as much as the 165g and heavier.
