When I first began loading I used 52gr 4895 in a 06 and a 150gr Hornady Spire Point. Used that load for years and wacked a lot of bucks. Last time I looked the load might be a little hot but that load was in a old Lyman Reloading Manuel.
Shoot over a chronograph and see how it performs. It's a good powder in the 06 with light bullets...quite accurate.
