Default Benelli

I bought a Benelli R1 before last season. I used 180 gram rounds while practicing so I also used them for hunting. I didn't get a chance at a deer so didn't use it. With this rifle there is hardly any kick. Before last season I must have put 200 rounds down range with hardly any stress in the shoulder. I doubt I need the 180 grain for the hunting area i use. Rarely over 100 yards. What is you opinion on the rounds. Should i go down or stay the same?

Default I am guessing it's a 30-06

I prefer 165gr loads in my 30-06s. I use the starting loads in the Nosler book and have very good luck creating an accurate load that seems to work in all 30-06s I have tried it in. I did, and would load again 180gr Partitions if I was returning to Idaho for Elk again. I think that the 30-06 firing 180gr loads are perfect for Elk at 0 to 200 yards. When I didn't reload I shot Remington core-locks in 165gr my rifle liked them.
