Reloading 30-06.  I did try IMR4350 with 165 & 180 g bullets, but couldn't get anything to group - especially the 180s, and those da*n accubonds.

I bedded the action and put the action in a manners, and now shoot 165s & 180s with H4350 and I am seeing good groups.  Could be the stock sway, and potentially the bullets because I changed bullets.

Always shot 150s with IMR4064 and see good results.

And seeing respectable velocities across the board.

imr 7828 for 180 and 200 grn in a 300 win
There are only so many sunsets left.                         
He wanted a Hawken rifle 50 caliber or better. He settled for a 30, but dam it was a genuine 300 WIN MAG you couldn't go no better.
