Hi againI'm interested in this also as I have a remington 700 30-06 that I'm starting to do load work on.so far I've got 178 eld x at 2780 with 6.5 staball also have some loaded up with n550 but still working on that load.im waiting on my hammer bullets to show up and have few other bullets to try
A slower burning powder than Varget would be my choice for 165s in a 30-06 bolt gun. I.e. something in the 4350 burn rate class at +/- 57 gr.The only .30-06 I’ve got a load worked up for is my M-1 Garand. It loves the 168 grain Nosler Custom Competition with a mild load of Varget. With iron sights I’ve shot a few 1.5” five shot groups.
I’m about to figure out a load for my Winchester Model 70. Probably will go with Varget and 165 grain Nosler Partitions.
This. But mine is a 30-06AI and has a 9 twist barrel.181 Hammer hunters, R26
