Elk loads for 30/06

I am wanting to start loading for my new 30/06 rem 700 long range rifle. I want to use the Barnes bullet but not sure that is the right choice. I am work toward a good long range elk load. I am wanting to use the Barnes bullet because I really like it in mu 35 rem rifles, but maybe that's not the right one for the 06. Open for all the help I can get.

    To what distances? No one can accurately help you pic the most appropriate bullet for your needs until distance and impact velocity is considered.

    Jeff, I just got done reading the 215 vs 210 berger thread and I saw you chime in here about a 30-06. I my self am looking at the new 700 long range in 30-06 and it looks like it might be a nice platform to launch the 215 bergers. I just got 200 yesterday. My question is, do you have any experience loading the 215 in a 30-06?

    I ran a search for this and all I could come up with is a couple people that run Rl17 and 22. I have neither powder. I have Retumbo, H4831, RL25&33, Would you load any of these in an '06? Thanks for your time.

    I am not sure which bullet or powder, but yes I did want to go with a 180 gr. I want to be able to shoot 500yr at least. I have read that the Barnes bullet needs to be at 1800ft on impact.

    I am not sure what powder yet, but I usually start with the highest velocity and lowest pressure. Thank you.
