    does anybody have any loads to share for an 8mm 06 cartridge with 24 inch barrel?

    I haven't zeroed the scope on this new rifle and wonder what powder charge to start with. I've been reading that its capable of 2-3 grains more powder than the 30-06 since the bullet diameter is slightly larger.

    anything would be helpfull to get me in the ballpark anyway
