    Looking for any info from this forum ref: 338.06 AI loads for 185 gr Barnes TSX tipped?? Have just finnished the break in with 56 gr Varget 210M primers and 200gr hornaday. Now the fun with a 28"McGowan barrel on a Mod 70 action thats been "trued" up with action and bolt face lees than one thousandth out.
    Have several powder's available (rl25,big game,N-160,4831sc,4350 and 4064) and BR2 and Fed 210M primers.
    All info from the past ref gun build was digested and will post results when the weather is better here in Maine to even get to the ranges.

    Mine's been the most consistent performer with H4350 and the 200/210 class bullets. I suspect I'd start there with the 185's.

    I shoot moly, so my loads aren't relevant for your use. Although I went to 2950 with the 200's out of a 23" Rock, the low 2800's keep on keepin' on....
