Re: Pet loads for 3006?

I have tried IMR 4350 in my 30-06 and 150 gr. Nosler BT's. I couldn't find a combination that my gun liked, so I moved on to a different powder. I know my dad used it in his 06 with good results. I'll see what he was loading and get back to you on it...

Yes, I have used the IMR4350 with 165gr in several rifles with good results.A powder weight of 56.5 to 57.0 is about max for me.I've not tried the H4350,but that powder is supposed to be less temperature sensative and have lower ES, which gives better results ar longer ranges.

Re: Pet loads for 3006?

IMR 4350 is my favorite 30-06 powder, and the Hornady 165 grain Interlock is one of my favorite bullets, I typically load this bullet with 56 grains of IMR 4350. I would advise to to verify any "pet loads" you want to try. Firearms are like people, they like different foods, you can't go wrong feeding your 06 with IMR 4350, just get the serving size right. Safety should take priority over accuracy when reloading. I do use several Hodgen powders, but do not use H4350 because it is "another 4350" powder, and they are not the same. I use either one or the other and do not stock both powders, just to eliminate the chance of subsituting one for the other. There is not a big difference between H4350 and IMR 4350, but there can be with other like number powders.

I've shot 56 -57.5 grains of I 4350 in a few '06 rifles with 165gr. hornady bullets. They usually shoot excellent. H 4350 will do well too, but the top charge may be a bit different.

Re: Pet loads for 3006?

57-59 grs of H4350 should make you happy. I know many love IMR4350, but my results were not too good. I also have had great luck with Varget or 49-grains for around 2850 and great accurracy.

Good luck!
