I loaded some test rounds for a new 30-06 Rem 700 yesterday and gave them a try. I was using Win brass, win LR primers, Hornady SST 165gr bullets over Varget. The results were not very good, 2" groups for the different weights of powder, and the velocity was not too good either. I averaged 2675 for the max load. I have the bullets seated about 7 thousanths off the lands. I think Varget may not be the best powder for that heavy of a bullet on a 30-06. Although Varget works great on my .308 with 168gr SMKs. Do any of you load the 30-06 and have any bullet/powder combos that work well?
