Every one has a different opinion--but I'll give ya mine anyway! Store bought--Federal Premium 165gr Ballistic tips will give anything you shoot with them--a dirt nap right now--period. I'm a 30.06 nut, always have been, and the afore mentioned cartridge has NEVER failed me. Thats my story, and I'm stickin to it.

That is exactly what I was asking, this ammo will be for a backup. I have two tags, may buy a couple more. I won't assume they will shoot the same either, just looking for a general consensus on what would make sense to get in case I need it.

Look at something with the Hornady SST bullets. They have very similar B.C. and profile to the AB.

Ballistic Tips are gonna be the closest, same manufacturer, same shape, different construction.

I agree with Fireball, I hunt with the same 4 bullets all year, unless I kill a deer, then I will have 3 bullets

Listed velocity on the 165 Part. from Federal is 2830. The NBT vel is listed at 2800. I would re zero with the new ammo and use the other 3 as backups. Inside 200 as you state, I doubt there would be a big difference in POI but stranger things have happened. Re zero with new ammo and go hunting.

I dig that. Is there a story there?
