I will be trying 165gr HPBT trying to finalize that load. Working with the concept of faster powder than H4350 type powder and using CCI 250gr primers to light the powder and burn it all up in a 22" barrel. Will see how sound and effective my theory will be tomorrow.
Also 180gr bullets using IMR4350.
Also, 240gr Woodliegh as I try and finalize my ultra heavy load for my 30-06.
Temp should be at starting time 67 degrees and by the time I finish it will be around 75 degrees, with winds at around 5 mph. Should be a perfect morning to accomplish some final details and hopefully good accuracy along with acceptable velocities for cartridge and bullet weight.
Kind of fun when you take a plan old 06 and can develop so many different loads with so many different weights of bullets. It keeps one from getting bored when your rifle is not limited to just a few really good bullet weights and loads as most cartridges are.
The 30-06 is like vanilla ice cream with all kinds of different toppings and they all taste good and go well with the vanilla ice cream. From 110-240grs and shoots them all well with the advantage of tweaking your rifle for any given or specific hunt or you can just go "All-So-Ran" using a 180gr bullet. Yes, lots of toppings and it is never boring.
