But for now I will have to settle with buying a scope mount for my 30-30 so I can practice.

Thanks for the information, advice and inspiration!

Re: Terrible 30-06 Accuracy

IMR 4064 is a very good choice of powders for the 150 gr.bullet. I certainly agree that you are likely to get beter results to leave off the crimp if you do not have an auto loader. I like to leave a gap about the thickness of a nickel between the bottom of the seating die and your shell holder at the top of your up stroke. When I do crimp, it is done as a sparate operation after loaded as described above.

I shoot 150 grain Nosler Accubonds and get great accuracy with VVN 140. I tried numerous powders and VVN150 shot pretty good. I decided to try VVN 140 and that was the ticket. 52 grains shot a .525 group. I neck size with Redding dies and use bushings to control the neck tension. I would give this powder a try. It is not temperature sensitive.
