    I just got a 30-06 for my birthday and I was going to try and shoot some groundhogs with it and I was wondering what would be a good bullet for groundhogs?

    first off you need to find a brand and weight of bullet that your rifle shoots well. after that, go shoot some groundhogs! whether you hit them with a 125 grain or a 180 grain bullet, the results will be devastating, to say the least. every now and again, i will test my zero on prairie dogs with my .30-06. if i can make a p dog explode at 200 yards, i now i can hit the boiler room of any deer or hog. regardless of what load i am shooting, p dog chunks fly in every direction! it's a blast, just a little expensive. they're kind of like those potato chips, once you pop, you can't stop! have fun.

    excellent analogy chips to shooting p. dogs Jordon.!! You are correct, with the cost of Ammo, High volume Dog shooting gets expensive. I have customer from GA that travels to N Dakota every year. He loads a 1000 .243 Win. bullets before he leaves. Shoots a week and comes back with nothing but empty brass. Ouch!
