Going to work up some hunting loads for the 30-06's for my self and some friends. All using remington 700's.
Was going to load straight from sierras manual but wanted to see if anyone has some good recipes they can share to maybe get a better starting point.
Im wanting to stay around 2800fps. We dont need any heavier or faster for the deer here, dont want to tear up the meat, open for suggestion
Ive got RE-15, IMR 4895, IMR 4064, and Varget stocked. Federal, hornady and remington brass. Fed 210M primers and CCi 34
Any thougts? Thanks!!!
RE-15, IMR-4064 and Varget are all excellent powders in combinatio
Again, it is all about what your rifle likes. You still will need to work up your loads for each powder / bullet combinatio
Have a question. Are you loading so that all the ammo can be used in all the rifles or are you loading to each individual
I didn't have any thing on 150 gr but here are the spec's for my go to load for deer & Elk
|Bullet type||Game k|
|Charge in gr||58.5|
|Standard Deviation f/s||19.02|
I don't own nor shoot one but I have loaded for a few with 150 GK's and IMR4895 to get close to the velocity you are wanting you will end up in the 48-49 grain area. These loads were like Hacker said generic and to book spec but were accurate in the 1-1.2 range in the three guns that shot them CCI 200 primers. I have also loaded IMR4320 with the same results accuracy wise load was 51.8 gr with Fed 210 and 210M primers brass was a mixture. My neighbor shoot both the 150 and 165 GK's with H4350 chronoed at 2885 his 150 load is 56gr of H4350. He run his 165 GK's chronoed at 2850 with 55gr of H4350. As a side not his 165 load is a little more accurate then his 150 load we are talking .95 and 1.1 respective
My vote is for a 165 gr. since that is usually the most accurate other than a 168 gr. I load 165s of almost any thing to around 28-2,900 fps. for sub moa groups. I have a couple of 1 shot drop in tracks kill with these at ranges from 75 -200 yds. Consider H414 as a propellant
