Powder 30-06 and 7mm rem mag

I am new to reloading i have a 7 mag and a 30-06. I do a lot of hunting with both guns what would be a good powder for these guns. I have heard a few good things about IMR 4350. I don't know anyone who reloads so any info will help.

Thanks!

Welcome to LRH. You didn't mention what bullet weights you are using.
I've had good luck with IMR 4350 in the 06 using 165-180 gr bullets. We can say the same about 7RM with the 150 gr. but if your planning on using the 160gr. + you may want to try some of the slower burning powders H-4831, H-1000, IMR7828.
That's just what works for us. Make sure you start low and work up whatever powder you decide to use. Good luck!
