My .30/06 loves 760 by the bucket load. A favored load is 150gn Partitions over 62gn for 3080fps. 59grains with 180's tops 2800fps plus, and cases fall out of the chamber.

My loads tend to be a little higher than you see around here because of my sloppy chamber.

THe 220's zip into .5MOA using 55 grains in my rifle and many blokes are using charges around that with 180's so it pays to beware of recommended loads. These are mine for a reason, they are mine.

I do however, recommend you grab that keg while it is available. 8 pounds can kill a lot of game.

Guy is selling me a sealed 8pds for $130 in town here, so no shipping. My next question is this, can Fed 215 LRMP be used with this powder? I once lived in Alaska and hunted with a 7mm ultra mag that used these magnum primers so I I have quite a few that I don't need anymore, but someone told me I could use them for the Win 760 ball powder?

That is an excellent price and the 215 primers will work fine. Congratulations!

59 grains of 760 runs right at 3000 fps with 150's in my 06. One note the old data for 760 had 57 as max. Newer data is 60 i believe. Also as mentioned h414 is the same load data.

Mine loves 62 grains with 150's for 3080fps. When I bought the rifle new in 1993, the current 760 0f the day consumed 64 grains to achieve that velocity.

Always best to validate burning rates and even smarter to buy the 8 pound jugs so you don;t have to worry about that for a while.

I got 2940fps with 180 ballistic tips and 59grs of Hunter and Fed 215's. This was in an older Ruger #1 with 26" douglas barrel.

Groups were about 1.2" for 6 shot average. Used winchester cases.

Shot over a ProChrono.

Very nice.What's the speed for IMR 4350? I'm going back to 185's in 30-06. WI'm pondering on using 185 Hunting or Classic.

Some of these are repeats, but here goes: 52 grains of IMR 4064 with a 150 grain bullet; 57 grains of 4350 (either) with a 165-168 grain bullet; and 58 grains of Hunter with a 180. The first two are Ken Waters loads and the last is from Mule Deer. I have found all three below maximum and accurate.

57.5 gr imr 4831 and either 165 sierras or 165 partition. Fed 210m or cci 200. Didn't matter. Shot both to same poi and both around 1/2 moa. In fact first 3 shot group was closer to 1/4". Chrono said 2925 fps but I'm not completely convinced it's quite that fast.

57.5 gr imr 4831 and cci 200 or fed 210 puts 165 gr sierra gk or nosler part into tiny groups(1/2" or sometimes better). Chrono read around 2925 fps outta a 24" tube. Tried a few other loads with mediocre results. This was my buddy's 30+ year old load and luckily my forbes seemed to love it.

49 grainsIMR4064, 150 SST, CCI primer,RP cases, loaded to w/in .020 of the lands in a Mod. 700 w/ 25 inch Douglas barrel
Also 56 grains IMR 4350, 150 SST, Win LR primer, Lapua cases used in a Weatherby Vanguard II, also loaded almost into the lands. These loads are very accurate at a little under 2850 fps on 65-70 degree days. Some of the loads I see listed here would cause over pressure in my rifles, hence the wisdom of the work up. I shoot with a friend who uses a stock Mod. 700 of about 1995 vintage and my loads are low velocity in his rifle. His rifle has what I consider a too generous chamber and a long bullet jump to the lands. You would have too little bullet in the case to load near the lands. Seems common in Remingtons nowdays.

56 grains of H-414 behind a 165 grain Sierra BTSP, Rem 9 1/2 mag primer. I haven't fired any through the Chrony but I figure it should be in the vicinity of 2800 fps.

I'm getting consistent groups averaging 3/4 of an inch with a Tupperware stocked Charles Daly Mauser. That Tupperware stock has the action and 2 inches of the fore end bedded with Acraglas and some atomized aluminum thrown in for good measure.

For years I used IMR4350... didn't think there was a better choice in .30/06..... then I tried Ramshot hunter. The IMR4350 is now collecting dust on the shelf

Out of the Cooper Western Classic- 165 Grain HPBT. 62.5 Grains of Ramshot Hunter fired off by CCI 200. Chronographed at 3,000 FPS. I cannot imagine a better load and it is absolutely deadly on deer.


At one with the gun.
