I am looking at trying the hunting version of this bullet in my T3 .30/06 and was wondering if anyone has loaded them and can recommend a powder? I put together some already with H-4350. Started at 49grs.

This is the load I use with the 190gr Berger in my 06. Playing with the 210gr Berger this summer in that rifle.

340shooter,

I'm shooting them out of my .30-06 Ackley Improved. They are a very accurate bullet.

Your choice of H-4350 is right on and is a great powder. It will yield good velocities out of your shorter 22" bbl,

I run mine a little on the warm, yet safe side and developed mine using quickload. My -06 improved has a 26"bbl and with the slightly larger case, I'm getting 2900FPs from mine.

Loaded correctly, these bullets will shoot extremely well. I've taken 4 elk and 5 Muledeer with Berger VLDs and they work very well as long as you're not trying to break shoulders and limit your shots to heart/lung shots.

Hopefully this is helpful,

Dan

I also shoot a .30-06 AI, but I shoot the Berger 185 VLD's. I have a 26" barrel on mine, and I shoot IMR 7828 SSC lit with a Federal 210M primer. I'm also getting ~2,900 fps.
