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.

Both loads shoot 1.5" or less in both my '06's, are pleasant to shoot, and work well on W/T deer. I never have an opportunity to shoot futher than 100 yards where I hunt, so I don't need the horsepower of the max. loaded .30'06.

I've used 54.5g of IMR 4350 and a 165gr bullet to take most of my deer with one rife (760), one load. I now load 56g of H4350 and a Hornady 165gr flat base for my M70.

tinknocker,
What I have used for my sons is the 125 gr Nosler Ballistic Tip for the 30-06 reduced load.
Another option is to load the 30/30-06. I use 150 gr RN 30/30 bullets and IMR 4759 to get 2400 fps. You can also use the 170 gr flat nose @ 2200 fps. The Speer manual will list the powder charge.
These are very low recoil loads and quite accurate in a bolt action with a scope.

I like to do my hunting BEFORE I pull the trigger!
There is only one kind of dead, but there are many different kinds of wounded.

Did some shooting yesterday with my sporterized M1917 Enfield with a load that I found a couple years ago for it.

165gr Hornady SP
58gr IMR 4831
R-P cases
WLR primers

The old guy (made July, 1918) will put three into 1/2" group at 100 yards on a regular basis. This is with an old (dare I say?) Bushnell Banner 3-9X scope and original military trigger.

FYI,
My rifle is Winchester 70 ( 30-06 )with an Elite 4200 3-9x40mm
I just did one simple test for fun.
I take 10 case, put WinLargeRifle primer.
I take a Look on different reloading data, and notice there almost the same for the H-4350 and the IMR 4350.
So, I put 59.5gr of each one in 5 case.
and seat over it a 165gr Nosler Bal-tip, COL: 3.250 inch.
I placed 2 target at 100 yard, and fire one round of H-4350 on the left target, and one of the IMR-4350 on the right one.
After all the 10 round were fired, i went to target to notice a huge difference.
The Load with the H-4350, give me a spread group of 2 3/4 inch.
the Load with the IMR-4350 give me a tight group of 3/4 inch. ( WOW )
Now the Speed:
H-4350 = 2865 fps
IMR-4350 = 2885 fps.

Notice else to say, in my rifle, the IMR 4350 is the one she love!!!

I clocked my 56gr H4350 and 165gr bullet 30-06 load last Sat. and got 2800 fps + with the 24" barrel. I don't reckon I need more powder.
