With my 1 in 10 twist a 190 is the largest bullet I can stabilize.

CCI 200, IMR 4831, Hornady 190gr SPBT, Win case.

I use H414 in the winter when it is below freezing but that powder is too sensitive to temperature to use in the summer. In the warmer temperatures, every 10 degrees I need to develop a new load. I get 1.5" 3 shot groups at 300 yards with it when below freezing so...

I have some cartridges ladder test loaded beside me with IMR 4064, I'll be back to tell you if they do well.

Re: 30-06, 168 Sierra Match King, imr 4350

I know these arent SMK's, but my Hornady book lists 48.1gr MIN. for 2400fps and 57.0gr MAX for 2900fps of IMR 4350 with thier 165-168gr bullets. They state that Varget and IMR 4831 gave best results accross the board, and also note that H-414 and IMR 4350 gave very good results. Just figured a bit more book info couldnt hurt.

I do not yet load for my 30-06, but plan to in the near future. So I do not have hands on experience with these loads yet. Ill be using 165-168 gr bullets but not sure wich brand. Im currently loading for my 270wsm and 300wby, and dont have -06 dies. Please post your results, that way when I do get my dies, Ill have more info to go on
Good luck
