Re: Max load question

I've had several 22" 30-06's and 2800 with 180's were never a problem.

Also, in a case the size of a 30-06, I generally go in up one grain increments.

You should be able to find another accuracy node closer to 2750-2800.

Re: Max load question

One other piece of advice that I forgot to mention about making sure that you know where the bullet will hit here vs there is to use a 100 yard sight in and use a decent ballistics program to give you a drop chart. When using a zero that is relatively close to you you will be taking away some of the atmospheric factors and allowing you to create a relatively accurate drop chart for a vary different climate. rather than punching in an actual 200 yard zero, you punch in that you are zeroed in 2.9" high at 100 yards (or how ever high you are hitting at 100 yards).

if you then use the ballistics program to create a chart for 10000 ' and 20 degrees you will be much closer to the mark than if you would have simply used a 200 or 300 yard zero.

I hope this makes sence... I have my doubts if I explained it properly.
I used to re-load but now I "hand-load".
