Re: Recommendation for 30.06 - 180 grain

As a new poster here, I really enjoyed reading this entire thread, especially since I just rebarreled my Savage from 338 Wm to 30-06, so it could be a more all round useful rifle, and not have to worry about it taking my shoulder off as well as the animals. I really didn't mind the recoil the little bit I shot it, but is is too much for these small CA mulies.

I just finished loading up a bunch of Barnes 168gr TTSX's and am waiting till I get a chance to get to the range for accuracy/velocity testing.

Re: Recommendation for 30.06 - 180 grain

Just ran across this old thread.

Jim, how did the H4831 turn out for you? I am shooting it even with lighter bullets in the 165-8 grain class and getting great results. It isn't as efficient (takes more grains of powder) as some of the faster burning powders like Varget, which I have had really good luck with, but it is very consistent! I like it a lot.
