For all you 30-06 owners, what bullet are you using?

But will 3.350” COAL fit in a Rem 700 mag well?
Well I think so lol. I haven’t tried to mag feed them yet. I wouldn’t see why they wouldn’t. My 300 win mag action feeds a round that is 3.650 and I think they are the same action besides bolt face diameter.
Just checked my bdl mag well. I’m good to 3.665 on it.

I use the 150 grain Hornady SST out of my 7600 pump with 47 of Varget and Federal primers. It shoots 5 shots in an inch group at 100 yards which is phenomenal from a pump gun with a shotgun-like trigger.

Took my first pronghorn with it in Wyoming at about 150 yards and it literally pink misted him; we all saw it and were like WOW! It blew him right over and he didn’t move a muscle. Blown over like he got leveled by a lineman. I’d never seen such force before. Impressive actually.
I have only tried one combo in this 06’ (Rem 7600) but during load work up I shot a 3 shot group that was 0.572” and one that was 0.627” at 100 yards from the bench. I installed the Timney trigger fix. Big improvement!
