It may take little more time but I like to start with parent case and if you have any prior loading experience with the 30-06 that would be a big help. I didn't do the 30-06AI but did the 30x280AI and I use 30-06 loading data.
The start load give me a good base on velocity on up to max load. I did try 5 powders in the 30-x280AI with 165gr bullet my best result were with H-4350 followed by IMR-4350,R-19 other two were pretty slow.
I have pretty good gunsmith that does my work never had a problem getting the accuracy I want and I always send along couple dummy rd for throating. My barrel length was 26" long.
I never did hunt with rifle good project for me.
