30-06 168gr Reloader 17 Loads

Here is a recap on my 30-06 168gr loads using Reloader 17. It sure has some speed out of a 22" barrel.

Here is my resent ocw test using my 30-06 marlin xl7 rifle using 168gr amax and reloader 17: I did not run into any pressure signs, I may go higher in charge.



Okay back from the range. Went forward with more powder for 30-6 RL-17.

Looks like 57.4gr thru 57.7gr have same POI. As 57.1 was scatter and and got scatter at 58.0grs. So my guess would be 57.6 gr would be OCW? Comments? I may have pulled the 3rd shot in 57.7 grs.



Did some more testing with my hunting bullet 168gr TSX. Ended up using different primers, changed to CCI-BR2 no change to POI. However it was a hotter primer and raise the speed up. I played with bullet seating and I'm pretty happy with the results. Of coarse I want to retest the load and test them at farther distance. My plan is 500 yards max with this combo.

Reloader 17 @ 57.5grs.

Speed:
.546 group
2989
2996
3009

.803"

Hi cva54,

Well I dont think BLC2 is all that great with the 06, got any other powders? 4350 seems to be the best for 150's up. What bullet weight you working with?

I got IMR 4350 and 150 fmj/150 sp/bt 165 sp/bt. I have been doing some research. Starting to think I need some difrent powder. The part that get me is the BLC-2 will push the FMJ bullets great but when I use the SP/BT it all falls apart. Both bullets are listed in the same recipe.

I had a load worked up for my 30-06 sporter that worked really well with 168gr berger and RL17. Thought I had a keeper. POI and grouping changed from one range outing to the next. Not absolutely sure but I think the 17 is a bit more temperature sensitive than the loads I had worked up previously wityh 4831sc. Might be that the brass was ready for annealing though as well.
