30.06 varmint loads needed

just was wondering if any one had some loads worked up for an 06. This rifle is for a future project, planning on playing with the factory barrel for now. Need loads for groundhogs and coyotes. Don't care about burning out the barrel just need some safe accurate loads.

    what ranges are you anticipating? 110Vmax is awesome for closer stuff...

    real world yardages would be 500 or less. most shots would be around 300 or less.

    Sounds like 110Vmax territory to me [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] 175SMK will have less wind drift at the far end however. Better go dig out the 06 notebook...

    It will not be an 06 for very long. Bought the rifle for the action. For big game I have my stw for that. This rifle will be just used for a short time until the new barrel gets here. Need some loads set up for the lighter 30 cal bullets, might shoot this thing for 8 weeks. Thanks oldfamily
