I just got a 30-06 for a combo deer/elk hunt. While cow elk is what I am primarily seeking, there is a better chance I'll encounter mule deer instead.
Any recommendations on a factory load that would handle either a cow elk or doe mule deer with comparable effectiveness?
I was looking at a relatively light Barnes TTSX 150 grain load, as I'm aware velocity is king with the TTSX. However, I still wonder if I would be better off with a bullet that has more violent expansion if I get a deer instead of an elk. Thanks for any opinions.
