powder for 30-06 w/ berger 180s?

guys what powder would you recommend for some berger 180s? The rifle is a browning bar.

I have the bullets already. I picked em up for a buddy of mine and he doesnt want em so I'm gunna keep em and use em. So I was just wondering what powder you guys would recommend?

    I have gotten best results with RL17. I have shot 1/2 moa consistantly on calm days at 2820 FPS with 180 grain acccubonds. My max charge was 56 grains.

    RL19 has been good
    H4350 has been good as well
    I have not tried RL17 or H100V
    They seem to offer what the 3006 wants in burn rate.
    IMR 4895 works very well in short barrels

    I've had a half dozen different 06's and H-4350 with 180's has always been stellar. 2800 in a 22" barrel was never a problem and all the accuracy you could handle.
