This year I'll be toting:

25-284, 100gr TSX
280AI, 140gr TSX
243, 85gr TSX (will be punched AI after the season)

I'm thinking the 25-284 will see the most time this year...

I'll be shooting the venerable ol' 30-30 this year. Not sure what I'll be using for ammo yet, still need to put some more range time in. The gun seems to like 170 grains the best. I tried the LeverEvolutions but couldn't get a decent group with them.

100 Gr Grim Reaper expandable broad head. Our rifle season in Missouri is all of 10 days long and archery season is 100+ days, if I can kill a couple of deer before rifle season, I may not even bother sharing the woods with the pumpkin army.

If I do participate in rifle season, I'll use my 30-06 with a 150-165 gr bullet.
It's a fact that 70 percent of the people who purchase heavier tackle do so with the categorical I just lost a huge snook! Einstein Hairdo.The other 30 percent have either Tarpon Fever or are sporting a hand cramped into a claw from a deepwater grouper.

Rem doesn't make a 160g, they do make a 150g and 165g though. I use the 150's and yes, they do drop them everytime.

300 WSM loaded with 61 grains of powder and topped with a 165gr nosler accubond. Shot a deer with this bullet last year and the heart lung area was mush; deer was dead before he hit the ground.
