Re: Velocity 185 Berger 30-06

In a 24" barrel I get 2821 avg vel with 185 OTMs and 57grns Imr 4350 in win brass, also 3015 with 168s and 59.5grns H4350 in win brass, and 175 noslers I get 2910 with 58.5grns H4350. Expect 20-35 fps more with your 26" barrel.

    It is based on a .270 length case with less body taper than the A.I. and the shoulder moved forward cosiderably, but still has a .317" neck. Case capacity is approx. 77 grains of H20, depending on brand.........rich

    So would I be able to just ream out a 30-06 chamber to 300 sherman without setting the barrel back? Do you have any side by side pictures of it with the 30-06?

    Thanks

    Yes, you should be able to just set it back. I have side by side with the .270 and I could take one with an '06 if you like......Rich

    With performance like that out of the venerable 06', who needs a Magnum!
