Re: 30-06 load make up help
+ 1 on Kenny0709"s 56 grains of 4350 under a 180 gr. I use a Fed #215 on this load and it has never been +P in any of five 30/06 guns I've shot it in. I use the Sierra 180gr SpBT GK as it opens reliably at lower velocity. I have confidence in this load out to 700yds no problem. The Sierra has done < 1MOA in every gun. The Rem 700 has a really long magazine so check your jammed COAL and load as long as you can without hitting the rifling or front of the mag. 0.020" is a good start with the Sierra if your mag cam handle it. If the 0.020" jump loaded round will not push down into the mag, try it as long as possible.
30/06 is probably THE cartridge of the 20th Century. Love it!!!
