Dan,
That's a fine rifle and scope combo and it obviously is a shooter. You were thoughtful enough to select a rifle in the appropriate caliber.

Did you get the model w/Mannlicher stock?

Why isn't the Federal ammo good for hunting?

I got several boxes of .30-06 Fed. 165s in a trade, loaded with 165 Sierra GKs and Speer 165 TBBCs, but haven't shot any, yet. Also got several boxes of Fed. 180's w/Partitions and GK's. I see no reason why any of this ammo wouldn't be good for hunting.
Of course, there aren't any charging hippos around here, so no need for a little thicker bullet, but there ain't a cow in Oklahoma that would stand up to the rough treatment of any of these loads.
