    Thanks

    It's a remington 700 with 24 inch barrel. Getting new brux barrel on it and action bedded right now. When I get it back I wanted some proven loads to have ready for it.

    Similar to RetiredCPO
    57.0gr H4350 or IMR4350 with 165gr Nosler ballistic tip...very very easy. Never saw an '06 that didn't like this load...maybe 2825 fps in a 24" barrel

    54 Grains RL17, 200 CCI Primers, 200 grain accubond, 3.41 OAL, 2720 FPS
    56 Grains RL17, 200 CCI Primers, 180 grain accubond, 3.41 OAL, 2820 FPS
    59 Grains RL17, 200 CCI Primers, 168 grain Ballistic Tip, 3.41 OAL, 3012 FPS

    These loads are all estimated by quickload at 65kpsi so only attempt to carefully work up in rifles also chambered in 270 Win. All shoot 3/4 or better at 100 yds on calm days.
