After having nothing but great luck with Nosler Accubonds, I've been doing a little reading on lead exposure from hunting bullets and have decided to switch to lead free bullets, at least while my sons are very small. I already have a good load for the 127gr Barnes LRX that I will be using in my 6.5 Creedmoor, but need to come up with a new bullet/load for my .30-06. My baseline want is one bullet for Antelope through Elk, but with emphasis on Elk as I'll probably use my 6.5 for most medium game hunting. My rifle has an 18.5" barrel, so muzzle velocities will be in the high-.308 to low .30-06 range: 150gr - 2,900 fps 165gr - 2,800 fps 175gr - 2,700 fps Shots will be 350yds and in. With all that in mind, I'm curious: 1) What brand of copper bullet do THR hunters prefer, Barnes (TTSX, LRX), Hornady (GMX), Nosler (E-Tip), other brands? 2) What general bullet weight would you look to for my use, range and anticipated muzzle velocities. Right now, I'm leaning towards the 168gr TTSX, the Barnes are most available near me and seem to have a good reputation for reliable expansion. What does everyone here use and like?
