I use it for 150 and 180 grain bullets, along with IMR4350. I also use IMR4064 with 150 grain bullets.

I use 56.5 grs IMR 43350 and Hornady 165 btsp.
I chronyied these @ 2886 fps from a 22" Browning Safari grade.
This load at 300 yds. seems to outperform the .270 loads I was shooting.

Why wouldn't a .30-06 outperform ANY .270 load! smile

R15 and the 125 TNT

57/IMR 4350 with a 165 Sierra HPBT

IMR 4350 and a 180 Horn sp or Nozler Pt @ 26550-2700

I could easily take one very good .06 and hunt the world with this combo and never once worry. Course I'd worry less if it were a .270....grin

This load has shot well,under 1 1/2MOA, in every 30-06 (7)it has been tried in,54.0gr H-4350 and Hornady fb 180gr. I went on a search for the "One Load fo All the 30-06s",this was as close as I got.

O! You blasphemer! laugh grin

I have a couple faves.

1. 57 gr of H414 with a 168 TSX - very accurate, and kills well.

2. 60 gr H4831SC with a 180 partition -- scary accurate!

3. 58 gr H4831SC with a 200 Accubomb.

Must be the slow barrel/fast barrel thing. I've never gone past 57 gr., it's taken deer out to 425 yds down to 7 yds with no trouble or complaints with a 165 gr. Nosler Ballistic Tip. I also average just over 2800 fps with 56 gr. of H380 in the same rifle. Both loads shoot under an inch at 100 yds with a BT, AB, or PT 165 gr. bullet. The IMR 4350 load is what we use in my father's and BIL's .30-06 rifles as well. 3.389" OAL on the tip.

Can anybody with the current nosler book share the IMR 4350 data for the 165 g AB/BT bullets please.

The Nosler #6 shows IMR4350 as their most accurate powder with 165-168 bullets. Starting at 53 grains and hitting 57 grains with 57 being their most accurate charge with this weight.

61.0-62.0 gr's H4350 and 150's.
58.5-59.5 gr's H4350 and 165's.
57.0-58.0 gr's H4350 and 180's.

For the last 50 years my go to 30-06 load has been 57gr IMR4350 behing whatever 165gr bullet I happen to be favoring at the moment and Rem brass. CCI LR primers. Its fetched everything I've sent it after so I haven't seen any reason to change. smile

52/4064/good 150 gr bullet (Sierra, NBT, etc.); consistently the first load I've used to determine if a 30-06 would shoot. Over 20 30-06 rifles over 35 years and it has always held true. This may not be the bullet weight you want, but you have a starting point in terms of the rifle's accuracy or lack thereof.

57.5/IMR 4350/165 gr Nosler Partition; one of the best hunting loads for 30-06 I've ever seen, accurate as well in most rifles. Many DRT on deer, including several very large mule deer, complete penetration through chest of elk (x2).

55/IMR4350/180 gr. Nosler Partition; outstanding accuracy, great killing power on large animals.

58-58.5 grs. of Ramshot Hunter, WW cases and primers over either the 180 gr. Nosler Partition or the 180 gr. SRA GameKing. Can go to 60 grs. w/o pressure signs, but 61 grs. with the SRA bullet shows a trace of pressure on a warm day.
Accuracy runs .77 MOA with 58.5 grs. and the NP, and .84 w/ the SRA bullet at 58 grs.
With the 168 gr. TSX, H4350, I'm getting .57 for 57 grs. and .47 for 58 grs. Do watch the seating depth w/ this bullet. The above were loaded to 3.25 COL. At 3.30 COL, I blew out a primer with the first shot with only 57 grs.......
Have not tested for top end in either the NP or the 168 gr. TSX loads. E

I'm with Alaskacub. My load is 57.5 H4350 with the 180 Accubond. Very accurate although I have not used this particular load on any critters. I know the 225 accubond out of my whelen does nicely on black bears and a 140 accubond out of the 270 works great on deer and antelope. Can't imagine why the 180 accubond wont be perfection on elk. I will let you know in a couple of months.
