It's my understanding H414's the same as W760. I had a Model 70, 30-06 push feed Sporter with a 24" barrel. It shot well at just a little over 3K fps with 60.5 grs. of 760 and 150 Ballistic Tips.

I use 168 TSXs in my Tikka M65 30-06 with 57.0 grains of H414. Very accurate -- about 3/4" at 100 yards, and kills game very well. Never tried it with 150's. My S-I-L says he is using 150 Hornady BTSP with H414, and getting good results as well. I like the powder. It meters very consistently.

168 NBT, WLRM, 61.5 gr Ramshot Hunter, approx 2875 fps, VERY sub-MOA.

57 is a good safe load in any of the '06s I have loaded for. Back in the day, the Speer #8 manual listed 59 grains as max, and I used to shoot 58.5 of IMR4350. 57 works well, though. The Hodgdon load site shows a starting load of 52 gr of IMR4350 and a maximum load of 56.6 grains for a velocity of 2770. Pretty tame, really. And then there is this one

165 GR. SIE SPBT IMR IMR 4350 .308" 3.300" 56.0 2746 48,100 PSI 60.0C 2934 57,600 PSI

That one may be a little rich for my blood. wink

58.0/IMR4350/150NBT/CCI200

I just picked up an older [1968] Winchester 70 this summer, clean, nice rifle; mounted a period correct Redfield 4-12 scope I had laying around.

I tried a few different loads surrounding the Nosler 150 grain Ballistic Tip using Varget, IMR4064, IMR4350, and a few other powders I had laying around. IMR 4350 seemed to be the most consistently accurate. At 50 grains, Varget would throw two nearly through one hole, then would always toss the third round opening up the groups to around two inches. IMR 4064 just plain sucked, I couldn't keep anything under about two inches despite the powder charge. As for the IMR 4350, 58 grains seemed to be the magic number, as it will CONSISTENTLY put FIVE shots into about an inch at 100 yards over and over again.

I seated the 150NBT's to .010" short of the lands, as is customary for my reloads when I'm searching for accuracy.

Anyone have real world speeds with Superformace and 180 grainers in the '06? Hodgdon's sight indicates 2,840 with a max load. Has anyone come close to that in a 24' barrel?

I have WW brass, WLR and Fed 215 primers along with Hornady 180 BTSPs on hand for what it is worth.

Thanks

Some of my 06 hunting loads were worked up in an old Ruger M-77 with a very long throat so I am hesitant to post them. They could be way to warm in someone elses rifle. Enjoying the thread and everyones recipes though.

Wow! I always thought of myself as a pretty reasonable shot, but I'm leaving my guns at home if you're around!

Holy smokes! What barrel length? I'm shooting 208 amax's with Ramshot Hunter around 2700 fps with 24" barrel.

The one I've "settled on" for my favorite:
56 grains of Reloader 17
Barnes TTSX 168 grain (tipped TSX)
Federal large rifle primer

This load cooks along at about 100fps faster than IMR 4350, without any pressure signs whatsoever. (RL17 is advertised to pick up speed at a more uniform pressure curve, and it does.)

I took Barnes technical advise and hold the bullet a full .070 from the lands, and it really does increase accuracy to sub moa in my 06. (this bullet likes a small jump)

don't know why more don't use RL17, as it is a sweetheart.

180 Sierra or Woodleigh and 56.5 of H4350. Clocked it today at 2841 fps with an extreme spread of 11 fps. Brand new 26" Benchmark 5R barrel.


Life begins at 40. Recoil begins at "Over 40" Coincidence? I don't think so.

Having read through most of the recipes for 06 here, and just starting to load for it myself, I have noticed that no one makes mention of using Win 760. I only bring this up because I have been offered a new 8lb jug of it and the reloading books all show it as a good powder for the 06. Any opinions or experiences to share out there?

I haven't used the 760 branded powder but, do use H-414 which is the same powder. My Husqvarna really likes it in full power loads. Try it, you'll like it!:-)
