    Default Good Results With IMR4007ssc

    I decided to work with IMR4007ssc in my 30-06 Marlin XL7 using my favorite bullet when hunting whitetail deer and hogs, the 165gr HPBT Sierra G/K

    My load chain was:
    165gr HPBT Sierra G/K
    IMR4007ssc
    Winchester Brass
    Fed 210 Match primer
    OAL 3.185"

    Results:
    Velocity - 2907fps average
    Extreme spread - 13
    Deviation - 5
    Group size for three shots -

    Target three shot group
    [

    Increased the charge by 3/10 of a grain and average was 2938fps five shot group.

    Target five shot group with 3/10gr increase.



    I liked how this turned out, will use IMR4007ssc with my 06 some more.

    The Game Kings I've used have been soft lead nose tip bullets not hollow points. The target Match Kings I've loaded have always been hollow points. Are you use Game Kings or Match Kings for this hunt?

    These are game kings and the hpbt is sierra toughest bullet with a double drawn jacket. I have killed all the black bear I have taken with this bullet when using any of my 30-06 rifles plus elk when using my 06s
