The weather is pretty nasty, winds into the 40mph range with off and on rain.  I decided to do some reloading to stay busy. I  loaded 4 different 30 caliber rounds with the same bullet!  I actually used the same powder for .308. .30-06 and .300 Win Mag., IMR4064.   I did  use Reloader 19 for the 300 WBY.  ;D

What load do you have worked up for the .30-06?
Nothing is better than a Weatherby, big bore magnum, or a Colt.

My 30-06 Compass is zeroed with 168 gr. E-tips with 54.0 gr. of N160. A sub $300 rifle that is way sub moa!  Today, I was loading 150gr. Sierra FMJ in all 4. I'll load it in 300 bkt next.   ;D

Do you have any loads with 180 or 165 grain Nosler Ballistic Tips or Partitions or Hornady Spire Points?

Chris, if you're looking for a good 165gr BT load for the 30-06, I can suggest you use H4350 and work up carefully from 55gr up to the max charge listed in Hodgdon's data. Works like a charm out of several -06s among friends, and is a longtime known load for the -06.

I load the 180 gr Partitions for my 300 WIN Accumark. 67.7 grains of IMR4350 will shoot .6 MOA if I do my part. Maybe better with the correct nut behind the trigger.

Always had an affection for the.06. I think it's because when I was a kid, that was the caliber everybody seemed to want a rifle in. A classic for sure. Don't think I'll ever have time to reload again until I retire in seven years!

I'd love to buy a couple 30-06 rifles. One in bolt action. One semi-auto, perhaps from the early 1940's.... Unfortunately my wife insists on paying bills and being responsible.

Sorry... Yesterday was the last and final day for any and all complaints whatsoever.

Thanks for the replies guys.  My Dad had a 1960's 700 BDL with the stamped checkering and a 725 that he sold years ago.  Now he has one of the 760's with the saw cut forend and a Mark V Deluxe with a 26 inch barrel.  He's been using the 180 grain Winchester Power Points but I want to work up a load for them.

My 30-06 likes the factory 180 power points but they are difficult to find right now and I don't see is as a component bullet.  I went from 75 gr. of powder in the 300 WBY to 15 gr. in this one I did with the same 150gr. FMJ Sierra, 300 blackout.   ;D

Chris, I used 51 grs of IMR 4350 with 180 Accubonds on my Ruger M-77 Mark II.  This load gave me great results on this rifle, and was the starting load on the Nosler Reloading Guide 5th Edition.  I took this load to Africa, and took a Warthog with it.  I've also taken several whitetail deer with this load.
