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.

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.

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


Aim for the exit hole.

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.

I use the same bullets but in front of H4350, good accuracy and outstanding on game.

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.

Don't know how I missed this thread, but I'm glad it's here.

I am really surprised that I am pretty much a vox clemartis in deserto recommending 200gr. bullets. Lots of good ones...Nosler, TSX, A-Square, others too. Velocity decreases; mass does not.

Greatest rifle caliber ever invented, IMO.

This subject goes back to 1903, its addressed in every reloading book ever produced, but everything here is good, just repitition..

I use 3 powders in the 30-06, that being some old surplus Milsurp 4831, IMR-4064, and H-414, but there are many others that work geat..I like the 180 gr. Nosler bullet for anything I shoot with it. I have no objection to 150 and 165 gr. bullets. I think the 200 gr. bullets are a tad heavy and see no improvement on game over the 180s...I do see a sugnificant improvement on game with the 200 gr. bullets in my 300 H&H so I mostly load my 06 with 180 Noslers at 2700 FPS and my 300 H&H with 200 gr. Nosler at 3000 FPS

RP brass, WLR primers, moly 168 TTSX, 54.0 grains of RL-15, 3.495" COAL (yes, Remington factory chamber, and that puts me square into the lands). 100 round average is 5/8".

I can like it.

H414 150gr Sierra GK 56.0
Varget 110gr Speer HC 56.0
I4350 180gr eTip 52.0
H4895 150gr Sierra GK 47.0

The 180gr eTip is 1 full grain below Hodgdon's starting load. That bullet is so long that it generates higher pressures.

I haven't used the chronograph on the 110gr Speer HC, but the charge is 1 full grain above the Hodgdons starting load. It was a very accurate load both shots touching each other and no adjustment was needed to the scope that was setup for a 150gr load. After two rounds the barrel needed a rest. Of course it was probably over 100 degrees that day. I developed this load for Javelina before I switched over to HAM hunts.
