.280 Ack. Powders Vs. 30-06 Powders

Why is it I rarely, if ever run across published loads used for 30-06 using Retumbo, H-1000 or other similarly slow burning powders like I do for the .280 Ackley? Yet they are the virtually the same case?

Good question. I've been wondering the very same thing. Don't want to hijack this thread but has anyone played with Retumbo in a 30-06. ?????

Because those slower burning powders are not as effective in the .06 case in most instances. But, Reloder 22 is a very good powder in the .06 with 180 and heavier gr bullets.

Bingo!! we have a winner!!

You can't put enough load (bullet weight) on some slow burning powders to get them to full pressure in a not so overbore round like the '06; it's all case capacity to bore diameter (with bullet weight thrown in). rl22 will make a 180 haul in an '06, and is probably the slowest powder I'd use in it.

But the .280 Ack IS the '06 case, with 4 more grains of powder. So you're saying that those 4 extra grains are the difference between Retumbo working or not?
