Years ago(1960) when surplus 06 ammo was still widely available and I was very short on cash, I would make hunting ammo by pulling the bullets from military 06 ammo and replacing them with 150 grain soft points. It's my recollection that most of those rounds had about 49 grains of powder that looked like surplus IMR 4895 which could be had at the time for a dollar per pound. I hope that helps.

No expert here, but I thought ( "seem to remember reading..." ) that 30-06 machine gun ammo ( not AP ammo) was considered more accurate in rifles, than the standard 150 grain fmj loads.

Nah, one and the same ammo. A lot of ammo made during the World Wars that was intended for use in fixed aerial machine guns (not reachable by pilots/crew in order to clear jams) was loaded with primers given an extra heavy primer crimp to minimize jams induced by backed out primers.
