Re: Bullet for SRH in 30 cal
52 gr IMR 4320 150 Nosler AB/Partition - This load flat out shoots! Every 30-06 shot by everyone I know shoots this load just with various bullets.
If you want a HOT load in the 165 gr, work up to 60.1 gr of WW760. I am shooting 165 gr NBTs at 3000 fps with this load.
In my Ruger carbine, I am shooting 58 gr IMR 4350 with 165 gr Hornady IB with excellent results from that light weight sporter barrel. It shoots 2678 fps out of an 18" barrel. It is shooting 2834 fps in my Dad's and brother's Stalker and Model 700.
The 4320 load has taken many deer and antelope all over TX and NM.
