Re: 30-06 pet loads
This is not a heavy bullet load, but one that I have been loading for over 35 years. It's about the only load I ever shoot thru my 06, and have taken everything that I have ever shot at with it from prairie dogs, coyotes, antelope, mulies and whitetails, and elk. I have never shot anything with it that hasn't dropped virtually in it's tracks.
130 gr Hornady SP
51.5 grns IMR 3031
Win large rifle primer
I have no chrono, so don't know the ballistics, but it has always been a good shooter for me with exceptional groups.
