Short range .30-06 load
I have a Sears Model 53 .30-06 that my grandpa gave me about 6 years ago, that he bought in the early 70's. It is basically a Model 70 Winchester with the Sears name on it. I shot my first two deer with it and then haven't really shot it since. It had a Tasco 4x scope on it that was hard to see out of, so I chucked that. It now has the original open sights.
I plan now to use it for mountain lion. Since the shots will be very close <30 yds, and a quick follow up shot may be necessary, I think it would fill the bill nicely.
What bullet would be good for this kind of situation? I am thinking of either a Hornady, Speer, or Sierra 180 round nose. Possibly even a cast bullet at lower velocities? Any thoughts? Thanks!
