Re: 30-06 to 1000yds

fwiw,

some of the .30-06 shooters on snipershide have been getting about 2800fps with 208 amaxes with 26" barrels using reloader 22. 2700fps with 22" barrels.

One of the guys I've conversed with said that his pressures are running about 60-62k, and his load is 2 grains less than where he starts to see pressure signs.

I am not sure why this is optimistic. It is very realistic and then some. One just needs the right barrel and powder. I am getting 2525 out of my 26" 11x 308 with the 208 AMAX and is a very mild load. The only reason I cant get them to go any faster is a simple function of case capacity, a problem the '06 will face with less difficulty.

My answer to this is. The only reason is to make the 7 RM look good. There is no other reason.

Re: 30-06 to 1000yds

As far as RE-22 and the 180 SGK, IMHO is not the best combo. I would be looking at RE-17 or RE-19 for the 180's (preferably RE-17) and leave RE-22 for the heavier bullets. If you cant get any of the RE's to work then I would look to some of the H powders.

Okay dokey... the 30-06 max potential is a heck a lot better than I thought.

Re: 30-06 to 1000yds

Asked to try the 200gr bullets from Sierra the smk for target shooting and the sgk
for hunting.
Looking at the BC of the two bullets the bc is high for both....
Thoughts at this point would be a great help, as well as some 200gr load data for
the 06.
Have a friend in Saltlake, UT that can get some stuff, our area is out of most everything.
