Ok guys, perhaps this has been talked to death over and over other places, but i just can seem to find the information i want, so:
Im looking to purchase a new hunting rifle, basically for deer and ive looked the 30-06's way.
My question is that buying about a lower to mid price range gun, what (generall) groups could i expect at about 100 and 200 yards?
i know there are many factors, such as bullet weight and what type the rifle likes, but to generalize it, lets say 150 or 165 grain, and say the rifle is between liking them and hating them......
is about a 2-3 inch group at 200 yards too much to expect? (im talking bottom of the line rem core-lokts, win power points and federal soft points. )
EDIT::::!!! Ok, to make it easier..
I buy the gun, say a rem 770 in 30-06, i take it to the range using 150 grain core-lokts, sight in at 100 yards. Is a range from 2-3 inch at 200 yards out of the question,
asking based on first opintion of a 30-06
