i just got this 110E in 30-06 my initial game plan was to re barrel it. cant make up my mind on a caliber. so then i thought about asking my brother if he wanted to buy it to make a semi custom for his wife in 25-06. he wants to get it just no extra cash now possible baby on the way.
so for the time being I'm keeping it. and i keep saying I'm not going to reload for it cause I'm not 100% sure I'm keeping it as is or at all.
my question is what is the best bullet weight for the 30-06 for general hunting.
because i know myself and ill be reloading for it sooner than not.
i know everygun is different but what is the general consensus

I might move up to 180 grains for bear. Also I have a very old manual for my Savage 110E in .270 Win. but nowhere in the manual do they say what kind of wood it is. It only says Stock Assy Long or stock Assy Short 110E.
People think I'm paranoid because I own guns. If I own guns, what do I have to be paranoid about?
That's good advice on the sealer ! It will also help the stock to take stain more evenly . I've seen a bunch of Birch stocks stained without sealing and the most open grain doesn't look like it took any stain at all , creating light stripes .
they say 150 -165 but i used a 150 in my 30-30 and it put a nasty hole in one side with crap load of blood shot on the front shoulder. and i was told to go heavier and that if i was going to switch to 30-06 i should 180-200gr so as not to ruin the meat as much but if you want to shoot them in the neck it should be fine
