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.


Remember, not everyone has a happy ending, so be happy when you can

Do you get the feeling that there aren't really too many bad powder bullet combinations in the 30-06?

I use H-4350 with my 165 gr Noslers and IMR-4064 with the 150 gr. They work great. But I'd load many other powders and get similar results.

I was going to load up some Barnes XLC 180gr BT for my 06 tonight. Going to try I4350, H4350 and N160.

I'll report back on Sunday.

It will be over kill for antelope next week but its the only bullets I have sitting around for my 06.

Anybody try 180s....either the Speer SPBT or the Sierra Gameking BTSP with RL-22???

I have been using 57-58 grains of IMR 4350 with exceptional results, wanted to try the RL-22 cause if it works as well as I hope, I'll be a 1 powder man. My 7 mag absolutely loves it.

Thanks in advance,
David

I'm seeing a few Varget loads but they seem to be limited to lighter bullets. Anyone use it for 165/168 gr. pills?

I had ok results with Varget and 165gr pills.

My favoriet load is 61 grs RL22, Fed 210, Fed Brass, 165 NP. It clovers all day, good velocity, and the few animals have dropped. I am still playing with 180-loads. I have not been able to get my rifles to shoot well with H4350 for some reason and I have a bunch of it.

I have 3-06's, just need more tags! smile


Good Shooting!

4831 SC will give some strong velocities with heavier than 180 grain bullets...'max loads' listed by Hodgdon are really only in the 44 to 45,000 psi range...

there are some rewards to working up...

another sleeper powder with 150 grain loads and down is 3031..

I play with a lot of load development...

but then in the field... I sure have used a lot of IMR 4064, IMR 4895... with velocity in the 2400 to 2500 fps range...as where I hunt I seldom need max velocity out of a rifle... but it is a good thing to know where it is, in case you ever do need it...

It's solid. I quit worrying, tweaking my 30/06 20+ years ago with it....CCI 200 lg rifle primers, Rem brass and a Nosler Partition or Hornady Interlock have the same POI. Why waste time trying to improve that?

Kilt somewherer's between 50 and 100 big game critterz with 53 Gr. of IMR 4064 under 150 gr. PSP core-lokts. I buy em in bulk by the thousand or 500's, cheaper that way and they will shoot MOA outa the 308 just as well.
Last one was a deer Friday morning.
52 gr and your brass will last longer probably, and the critters will never know the difference. Reckon I am just stuck in a load I have used about 30 years, but it has worked so well, for so long I am not changing now, and I have lots of brass.

700LH, I've considered those bulk Rem purchases for years, but always went with Hornady Interlocks.....those core-lokts still as good today as they were 10-15 years ago?

I have wondered that myself since Remington introduced the new Premier, ultra-bonded, Core-lokt. I have not shot any game with regular Core-lokts made since the new bullets were introduced, as I am still hunting with bullets I have on hand.
My guess is they are the same bullet as before, that the new one's are just bonded a little better to compete with other company's premium offerings.
It is so rare for me to recover a bullet a guy would almost need to do testing to really know.

A writer for a magazine should do this, it would make a interesting article.

I've got two loads worked up right now for my pre-64 win70 .30-06.

The first one uses 58 grs. of H4350 and 165 gr. Horn. Interbonds. This gives me about 2850 fps and sub MOA accuracy.

The second uses 56 grs. of IMR4350 and 165 gr. Ballistic Tips. This gives me a tad better than 2800 fps and is considerably more accurate than the 57 gr. load I maxed out at.

Both of these use Fed210M's in Lapua brass and are both loaded to .020" off the lands.
