Proven 30-06 loads

Starting to reload for 30-06 from scratch. What are the proven powders/powder charges and bullets/bullet weights for this caliber?

SAAMI spec chamber, 1 in 10 twist, 26" barrel.

Thanks.

    ~ 57gr of H4350 under a 175-180gr bullet of your choosing is a great choice. I use 175gr SMKs and 180gr Partitions with Winchester brass and primers, and I get fantastic accuracy.

    58-59gr of H4350 under a 165 bullet is supposed to be a good combo as well, but for me wasn't nearly as accurate as the above.

    57g IMR 4831 and 180g Nosler Balistic Tip. Has worked well in every rifle I tried it in as a generic load. Be careful, could be on the hot side.
