Default 30-06 Long Range Deer Rifle

hi I have a delima and i was just wondering if i could get some help from other hunters and other knowledgable people about guns. What i was wondering is if i could load a 30-06 110grain bullet and get 3400-3500fps using a soft point bullet do you think it will have the speed and the penatration to kill a deer at 400-600 yds?

Right now my brother and i have 243 Super Rock Chuckers (25-06 cassing necked down to shoot 243 bullet) Most of our deer hunting is long range 100-600yds.Shooting 87V-max we get 3500-3600fps. His is 1957 mouser axtion on 28inch #5 shilen barrel mine is 19-- Infield action with the same barrel. Both shoots sub 1/4in groops at 100 yds. The only problem is they dont leave a blood trail when you shoot a deer . Eight out of every 10 deer we shoot does not have a blood trail. I shot a 6 point last week at 100 yds and no blood. My brother has killed 2 at 560yds but still no blood. Just wondering if we should go with the 06 option stated above or maybe get away from the balistic tip or maybe go to a heavyer bullet?

Looking Forward to your comments. Thanks

A bad day hunting is always better than a good day at work.
