I was fire-forming some Win brass I had neck turned and using 49 grs. IMR4895 w/Sierra 168 HPBT and F210M primer. Just an old 'worn out cartridge'....30/06!

Re: Do ya reckon.....

That must be a really soft shooting load. I can't find it in my load info.
Where did you get IMR 4895?
Dig it out from under the bench or break open some mil ammo?
I haven't even heard about that powder for 10 years.

IMR4895??? From my 'cache'!! I shot tons of it over a 45 year career shooting NRA HP comp!!

The load is in the Sierra manual!! Was just using it to FF and the 168s which I have a PU truck load of were just for the FF job!

It ain't a 'puzzie' load!

And old 'worn out cartridge; 30/06!!

Here's another. Shot this this afternoon with a 6.5x47Lapua using 130 gr. Bergers with BR-4 primer. Looks just like the one above but with 26" barrel.

Ten shots from 600 yds. in that 5" diameter plate. I painted over the lead/jacket splatters on the larger white plate for photo purposes. There's 5 shots at the lower portion of the 5" AR400 plate.
