It will be at least two and a half months before I post any finished work because I am in the middle of a major re-do of all my favorite 30-06 loads and some new ones in my main 30-06 hunting rifle. I can't continue until my new stock comes in but it is suppose to be here soon.
I am at the present working with 165gr Sierra HPBT, Nosler Partition, Remington Core Lokt, Hornday SP, Accubond, Ballistic tip - 168gr Barnes TSX, Sierra MK - 180gr Ballistic Tip, Sierra SP, Nosler Partition PT, Accubond, Barnes MRX- 190gr Sierra MK, 200gr Sierra SPB - 208gr A-Max - 220gr Sierra RN, Nosler Partition - 240gr Woodliegh.
Using the following powders:
IMR4895, IMR4320, IMR4350, IMR4831, IMR7828
RL-19, RL-17, RL-22
H380, H414, H4350, H4831
Brass: Winchester, Remingtion, Nosler, Hornady and Federal
Primers: Fed 210M, Fed 210, Remington 9 1/2 and CCI
I am keeping detailed records of velocities, extreme spread, deviations, group size and over all lengths. I do not want to short cut anything and the weather is very hot and humid down here so it will limit my time at the range. Plus I am doing this to develop specific loads for using the 30-06 for the following game as and all around cartridge and main go to rifle. Coyote, bobcat, hog, deer (white tail, coues, Mule) black bear, elk, moose, brown bear and other dangerous game, as well as possibly a chance again on plains game in Tanzania (if work sends me again)
So, depending on the specific game I am hunting I will have a specific load for the task at hand using one rifle.
I know there is other powders that can be used like Varget, but I do not have time nor the money to do more than I have set up to do.
Here is a link to an article I just had published which I will follow up with an article on load work. http://ammoguide.com/cgi-bin/article...id=mhsp68/3006
