    This is my first post. I have a Weatherby Mark V Synthetic in 30-06 due in on the 28th. I want to work up a load and from what I have read in the posts, I want to try 165 grain Nosler partitions and Barnes TSX. I am not sure of the powder that I will use yet. I am guessing that I will need a little slower powder since it is a 24 in. barrel. Any suggestions? Also, is fire forming the brass the way to go? I want to know because this will help in deciding what kind of dies to buy. This gun will be used for deer hunting Blacktails and ranges over under 400 yards max.

    Thanks for the input,
