Reloading for Deer hunting
The hardest desision is picking which press you want. I recommend a quality single stage press. I have an Ultra Mag by Redding, but have used the Rock Chucker by RCBS and the Orange Crusher by Lymon. The second big choice is what bullet you want to use. I personally am a reloader not a handloader. My idea of a handloaders are those who vary the bullet seating depth until it is perfect for each of their rifles. These troops are always saying I am x thousands of the rifling for this rifle. These handloaders have also tried every powder made and can tell you which is fasted, which groups the best etc. I load for my 30-06s using one powder, one primer manufacturer, and usually one bullet. I bet all of us that reload for Deer have a personal load that we like to load.
My load for 30-06s is
52 grains of Winchester 760, Federal large primer, Nosler 165gr BT
