30-06 load

I have a Remington 30-06 model 700 mountain rifle. This rifle has a very skinny, 22 inch barrel. The rifle is about 20 years old and I have had some work done to it to improve accuracy. I am able to shoot around 1/2 MOA with this rifle. I have loaded 56.6 grains of Reloader 19 at about 2550 fps. I am shooting the Nosler 180 Accubond. The accuracy is there however I was hoping to get closer to 2650/2700 fps. I am sure the 22 inch barrel isn't helping but is there any good ideas on the next best powder to increase velocity but not kill my accuracy. Reloader 22? Or should I just be happy with 2550.
Thanks Huntingbigsky

Re: 30-06 load

I have a bdl 700 w/ a 22" barrel. I got my best accuracy w/ a sierra 168bthp match and only 2550 fps w/ IMR 4350. I never loaded 180 grain for it however. If you want a little more range, you may wish to try the 165 grain class of bullets. A 30-06 will get better preformance in my opinion with this weight bullet.

I use win.cases,federal 210 primers and 57.5 grains of H-4350 this should net you 2700+ FPS and very good accuracy.......As always start lower and work up.....

I would also try H- 4350 as my next powder. Dean

Re: 30-06 load

Huntingbibsky,

I load 57grns IMR 4831 w/ 180grn BT's @ 2750fps. Out of a factory Browning White Gold Medalion. This load has been good for me in other rifles as well.

180's handle everything in Montana, big or small.

Good luck, Steve

Re: 30-06 load

what are you going to accomplish at 2700 that you can't at 2550?

Re: 30-06 load

Dave,
I sight in at 4" high at 100, drops to 8" low at 300. This equals point on for deer size animals and larger out to 300 yards with out range finding.
