    52 grs. IMR 4064, CCI BR2 primer, Rem Case, 150 gr Nosler Ballistic Tip will get the deer killing part of the question done and go a long way toward the accuracy department also in many 30-06's.

    Work up to as mush as 59 grains of H-4350 with 165 or 168 grain bullets or 57.5 grains with 180's. I use Federal 210 Match primers in Win. Cases and those are very accurate in my rifle. I load those charges with both the Nosler AccuBond or Barnes TSX bullets...
    range it,check the wind, dial in correction, aim and only one shot

    57grns IMR-4831, 180grn ballistic tip. Gets good velocity and seems to shoot well out of all the 30-06 I've tried it in. Should also work well w/ the Accubond.

    To hunt... or not to hunt...? What a stupid question.

    168gr sierra match king(target) 165sierra game king (hunting) over 57gr IMR4350 with a CCI BR2 primer(benchrest) and winchester brass.Loaded with lee collet dies this gives me 1/2 moa from an out of the box savage116 sporter with a 22" barrel. Its near max so reduce a couple of grains and work up.
    good luck Skip
