I have an early Remington Sportsman 78 that has a very long throat. It hates boattail bullets of any kind. It loves a case full of IMR4831, Fed210's and Speer or Hornady 180 Spire points. Will keep them on an old fashioned oil can at 400 yards. Kills 150-200lb Mississippi Whitetails with aplomb, might try a premium bullet if I ever get to shoot something bigger, but probably not.

55 grains of N560 under Hornady 180 grain spire points seems to work well for me.

Hodgdon recommends with a 165 Sierra and H380 a starting load of 51.0 at 2669fps and a max of 56.5 at 2892fps. Would probably put you in the ballpark for substituting a NBT. 380 seems to be between Varget and 4350 in burn rate. Both good 30-06 powders. Your results may vary.

GRIZ... believe it or not; straight out of the book....150 NOS.-either the old solid base or B.T/59.0 gr.IMR4350/WW Brass/CCI 200 primers/3.285" OAL: This load is covered with a dime/3 shots @100yds out of my: Mossberg 810A; Savage 110; Win. Mod70 Black Widow; Chrono thru Oehler 35P @12Ft.is 2920 avg. for the Mossberg and 2930 avg. for the Savage. Haven't done the Win.24" or the Sav.116 HBSS 26" yet, but they've got to be at least 50-80 FPS faster but, WTH it's the accuracy that counts as I keep my shots within 150yds. and head shots are more the norm than not...(don't like to waste ANY meat). My neighbor/hunting partner and his wife love the ribs and feed the innards to their dogs...and I haven't found even one recipe for antlers in 40+ yrs. of hunting deer and the racks don't mean anything to me. Don't know how this load works for others but it's a good one in my book.
A .30-30 equiv. load in these rifles, too, is: 29.0 gr. IMR4759/Rem. cases/200 primer/and either HOR..SPEER, or SIERRA 170gr. FP seated to cannelure for 2142 FPS avg. in the 22"brls.
Either bullet goes into a quarter/5 rds.@ 100 yds. with change due.(this load is used when my shoulder/rotator cuff gives me trouble. Never lost an animal-hogs included- with either load.
Just my $.02 worth. They should work for you and/or as a reduced load for the young kids starting out.
GOOD LUCK. WILL

Wondering from your past experience Nosler, 30 cal. 180 gr partition in a 30-06. How far off the lands was more accurate? Some bullets like more, some less. Hoping to save myself a lot of experimenting.

.010" jump is usually a safe bet for accuracy and it leaves a little wiggle room for error. I've shot 180 PTN and used .010" jump with good results.

SS...I wish I could save you some time but every rifle/load is its own identity. However, I usually start at .050" off-lands and work to .020" in .005" increments. If no improvement, I go back to as much as .100". Sounds crazy but as I said....Each rifle is different and responds to loads in peculiar ways. It takes time to find just what each one likes. What is accurate in one might be crappy in another. My three rifles all use different OALs and differ by as much as .040" (WITH THE SAME LOAD DATA).
GOOD LUCK in finding yours.
Apologies for getting back so late to you, but I've been under a sort of strain lately. [Recovering from a recent heart attack, and not feeling too well]

SS... the loads I've developed for my rifles were done so many years ago and tweaked as new bullets/powders came along over the years. Lately (past 20 yrs. or so), I've relaxed my expectations to what I call "coin groups", and concern myself more to 'hunting loads'. In the larger calibers-3 shots- (.338; .444), anything covered by a quarter is o.k. In the smaller-.25 to .30 calibers, a nickel is acceptable. In the .223.and .243 cals. I'll sometimes go for 'dime-with-change' groups. I've gotten some as small as .118"C-C but the trouble to measure them became too much for me, so.... the "coin groups" Keep in mind one thing: Unless you want to spend time and money chasing "Bug Hole" rifles and groups; The rifle is only as accurate as the person pulling the trigger, and the shooter is only as accurate as the rifle. If either one is less than 100%(forget all that 150-200% BS; 100% is ALL you have to give) sometimes what you get is less than what you expect. If the equipment is not up to par, the best shooter in the world will not get good groups, and the most expensive(read that all-top-of-the-line-Bench-Rest-quality-equipment and rifle)will not let the so-so shooter get good groups. Learn to accept the best that you and your equipment can do and be satisfied with that...I have. I don't mean to discourage you in the least, but be ready to experience some disappointment before finding the best results with your equipment.
WILL
Best of luck. WILL
