Re: 30-06 Load Data

Sureshot, how is the H4350 looking so far in your rifle accuracy-wise? Just curious.

Re: 30-06 Load Data

The Berger 168 VLD last Range outing with 59.0 H4350 using CCI250 primers I got 2816 fps and a 3-shot group that measures 0.692 so far.

I still have some work to do with this load when I get time. I'm electing to go with Nosler's 165 Ballistic Tip/ Accubond bullet.

Re: 30-06 Load Data

Recently tested Berger 168 VLD Hunting with my Remington 700 CDL, 30-06, 24"
COL=3,340"
IMR 4064 - 50,15
V=2799fps (average on 4 shots)
0,83MOA on 4-shot group


When touching rifling in my 700 COL=3,504 with 0,002 jamp
with the same IMR-4064 50,15 grain
V=2717fps (5 shots)
one 4-shot group is 0,76MOA, another one 5-shot group 0,62MOA

All this on 100m.
Earlier tried the last recipie on 280m. Groups were smaller, less than 0,5MOA out of 3-shots.

Re: 30-06 Load Data

Rem. 700 ADL 30-06, factory 22 1/2" sporter barrel, Win brass, 10 twist, CCI 200 primers, 3k elevation, 70*f, 15% RH,

with 208 AMAXs jumping .010", 3.766" with comparator, 3.52+/- COAL from tip:
55g R17 - 2720 fps. Horrible accuracy. 4" vertical at 200 meters. Tested several times. Probably would've shot better at lower velocities. Strong ejector marks, but primer's look good still, etc. Up around 56g, primer pockets would loosen. I may try 52-54 again, but lots of unused space in cartridge.

H4350 - best accuracy so far from this gun. 210g Bergers kissing, 3.776" from comp. I lost my paper and can't remember the charge weight but I think it was around 55g, iirc.
.3 MOA @100m with me on the gun with bipod/rear bag from bench. Loaded for a cow elk tag a couple years ago. Got on several bulls, but never did get on a cow.

4831sc -3K' elevation, 93*f, 208g AMAX
60g -2600fps - testing now, but back under MOA ~0.8 or so at 200m. no pressure at all, but very close to max fill.
I have 20 or so loaded up for further testing. Have a couple compressed 60.5 rounds loaded also waiting for wind to die (springtime in AZ I strongly dislike wind)... Accuracy nodes appeared to be at 58 and 60.
58 showed single digit ES and almost zero vertical. Hopefully 60 will repeat, but with higher velocity. If not, maybe 60.5, but can't any more in the cartridge.

Wish I could get VV N560 reliably locally.

Overall, I may give R-17 a retry, but I feel it's too fast for cartridge- perfect in .308, but a tad fast for '06 (IMHO). I also may try h4350 again just for kicks once I get 4831sc sorted. I may have her re-barreled by then though. We'll see...

Hope it helps.

Re: 30-06 Load Data

Good,
You may want to give RL-22 a try with that heavier Bullet. It's listed in the Nosler Manual with 165 & 180 Grain bullets.

Re: 30-06 Load Data

RL22 should be on the investigate list if you are going to go heavy. Give Woods a shout - he has done some research with it and 200 grain pills in several 30-06s, iirc all printed well.

Re: 30-06 Load Data

The OP isn't going heavy, I was just relating my experiences so he might benefit.
