Re: 30-06 loads

there is a thread on 24hourcampfire with a lot of good 30-06 loads. i use a horn oal gauge to set my oal. i use 50.5 grains of varget and a 168 berger for most shooting in my hunting 30-06s.

    I have settled on the following:

    Deer, 168 grain Ballistic Tip, 59 grains RL 17, 3.41 OAL, 200 CCI primers. This shoots 5/8 to 7/8" and velocity is 3012 fps.

    Elk, 180 grain accubond, 56 grains RL17, 3.41 OAL, 200 CCI primers. This load shoots 3/8 to 5/8" and velocity is 2820 fps.

    These loads are right around 65,000 PSI according to quickload.

I am going to try changing seating depths to see if I can dial that in a bit further.


    My questionis why do you not use the 180 BT it is the same bullet as the AccuBond except for the bonded core in the AccuBond.
