I shoot it with 57.8 grain of H4350 for .5 MOA groups. The COAL is 3.300" in my Remington 700 ADL.

My oal is 3.347" .020" off the lands vanguard sub moa with 165s and Imr 4350 it started flattening primers at 58 grains, I now use H4350 at 58.8grns with no pressure and 55fps gain and no change in accuracy.

I have settled on a 57grain load and it is working fine, not sure about velocity as i don't own a chrono.
Cheers

Re: Sierra gameking 165 gr 30-06 load

Good choice Devon in powders. I have used 57.4 grs. of IMR4350 with either the 165 gr. Nosler Partition or Accubond in two 30-06 rifles I have and they both shot that load wonderfully! I never noticed any pressure signs in either rifle and the case life in both was very good. Great load for the 30-06 and just about anything you want to hunt with it.
