Re: What Powder for 30-06 165 and 180 grain bullet
I'm with the consensus here that 4350 is one of the better choices for 165 grain pills and rl19 or rl22 for 180 grain bullets. I'd look at 4064, 4895 (either one), I 4320, aa 2700, big game (ramshot), 760-h414, I 4831, and a few other powders if you don't get what you want with 4350.
It's actually somewhat hard to go wrong with the '06 powder wise. You will want to full length or sb full length size as others have said as you're not using a bolt action.
