I use a Ruger #1B in 30-06 with 165 gr. Accubonds. I have also used my Ruger #1B in 6mm Remington with 100 gr. Partitions. I took one spike bull with the 6mm at about 30 yards in the timber. My son used his 6mm two years ago to take a large cow at 350 yards with one shot with the 90 gr. E-tip! It took her behind her right shoulder and exited the center of her left shoulder. She went all of about 20 yards. Last year he used his 300 WSM and a 180 gr. Accubond to take his second cow. I also enjoy archery hunting and I shoot a Martin Damon Howatt Hunter 60# recurve.
