I was at Academy the other day picking up another box of bullets for my .3006. I normally shoot the 150 grain Hornady bullet for deer hunting. Just from what I've noticed over the years the common bullet weights in .3006 are 150, 165, and 180 grain. Every once in a while you hear someone has a 200+ grain bullet for hog hunting. (I don't load my own rounds.)
I noticed that remington has a new "managed recoil" round and has a 125 grain bullet for the .3006. Maybe these aren't new and I just didn't notice them last year. Has anyone shot this round or heard about its performance? I'm sure remington cut the powder amount along with the bullet weight.
I have my gun sighted in a 100 yards to be 1.8" high, should be dead on at 200 yards, and 5-6" low at 300 yards. I wonder what this ligher round would do out to 300 yards? Would it change much?
