Well, 130gr HPs would be explosive on mouse at 500-800yds, but probably not so good for moose. I never did investigate a heavy bullet combo. I had some potentials when I found the light bullet, and it has served all I wanted. Good luck. I know the one gunstore here used to sell small bottles of powder, just for doing this thing.

Re: 30-06 Reloading Recipe??????(brass,primer,powder,bullet???))

Berger 210
49g H4350
Win brass neck sized
touching lands

Not fast at all, but this load shoots in the .3s at 100yds in my Rem 700 sporter with 22.5" barrel.

Switched to 208g AMAXs due to price and if I get above 2600fps the groups really open up... Not sure why that is quite yet.

Tried R17 and could get mad speed, but no accuracy,

and h4831 and couldn't get the speed of R17 and no accuracy above 2600fps.

Many people think h4350 is the perfect powder for the 30-06 case, and I'm beginning to agree, for my rifle anyway, but if your rifle will shoot that r17 well, the speed it offers is hard to ignore. A buddy shoots 48.4g of r17 under 208s from his .308 Win at 2600 around .5 MOA all day and loves it.

Good luck friend.

That is about the same as my plinking load for my scoped 30-06. I use .1 more Varget, a CCI 200 primer, and the Hornady 150gr FMJ.

This is the one shot I took today, using that load.

It is just a little weak, all my other 30-06 loads would have dented that steel.

My favorite load is:
Howa 1500 22"
Hornady 180gr SP; COL: 3.25
CCI 200
H 4831: 56.9gr
Case: Win

It is just as accurate as the above load but hits a lot harder.
