    anybody ever have any experience with the hornady 180 grain interlock soft point in a 30-06 for deer hunting. if so how did they work for you?

    I haven't had any experience with them in a 30-06 but my buddy uses them in his 300 Weatherby and they are deadly.

      They work fine. I have used them in 7mm, 30-06 and 6.5mm.

        Correction - different weights in the other calibers.
        180gr was the 30-06

          I have shot lots of deer with the Hornady Interlock bullet in 100g 25-06 and consider it to be one of the best deer hunting bullets available. I also shoot them in my .300 Dakota in varying weights but have not taken deer with that rifle yet. In hand loads, they are always one of my most accurate bullets, rivaling target bullets like the Bergers and Sierra Match Kings in accuracy.

          The little 100g bullet has penetrated deer end-to-end while shattering pelvis, half a dozen ribs and the brisket on its way through.

          The Interlock bullet is one of the best deer bullets you will find for your 30-06. If anything, it is overkill (if there is such a thing). I personally prefer the 165g a little more than the 180g for more speed and less recoil. No deer will stop it from any direction or distance. The factory Hornady ammo carrying this bullet may not be the most consistent that you can buy but the bullet is hard to beat and the worst of loads are still plenty consistent to take deer just fine.

            The 165 gr. load is deadly on deer. If your rifle shoots the 180 gr. better, use it.
