    Yes, it has a custom barrel. Use is for hunting. So far it is shooting well, but I was wanting some good starting points for loads in this caliber in order to hopefully not have to peer into my reloading manuals and wonder which bullet/powder combination would be best to start with. There are literally hundreds of combinations (if not more), and I really want to get to the "best" load for my rifle as fast as I can.

    Seems to me that there would be certain powders and bullets that are better than others for this caliber. And there are those that should just be avoided. The reloading manuals dont really tell you this in any detail.

    53 gr IMR 4320 Gets consistently around 2940 out of a 22" factory Rem barr. and shoots great. Bullet is a 165grn Sierra HPBT hunting bullet.

    it should shoot everything real good. and it is not like a 6.5-284 where you only get 1000 rounds out of the barrel. i would use re-19 or h4350 and 165 baltip, 165 horn btsp or a 168 balisticsilver tip; lapua brass. 210m primer. wlrm for cold weather. for elk maybe a 180. same powder. no need to hot rod it . the 30-06 will do it. other powders and other primers should do just as good. just my preference.

    Just loaded 54.5 grains RL 17 (yes the WSM powder) behind a Sierra SPBT 180 grain bullet, CCI 200 primer, and win brass. Could easily go 55+ grains RL 17 in case capacity, but this is a start. Anybody used RL17 in 30-06 before?. Gonna give it a go in a factory rifle in a day or two. Might be interesting to see the accuracy and chrono data.
