What will the bullet be used for???? What gun??? What cal...??? What velocity???

Depending on the above, will make "all the difference" as to what bullet to use for THAT job..

Mostly for Deer And maybe Boar.

And in 30-30

Or 30-06

Or 35 cal.

Not sure of bullet weight.

So if you would give a recomondation on what you would use on each bullet and what weight .

I haven't got a rifle for this and don't guiet know witch one I want yet.

Thank You

"Ok", if it was me, i'd buy Federal 170 grain Noslers for the 30-30.

For the 30-06, i'd use 165 grain.

For the 35 Rem.., i'd use 200 grain loads.

These are for hunting, so stick with soft points, and they will do a good job for you.
