20 to 25 grains of 2400 behind most any bullet in an '06 makes a good plinking load to work on eye-trigger finger coordination. I used to use 20 grains with a 169-grain lead gas check bullet.

A double-ought buck ball ahead of five grains of most any pistol powder or shotgun powder makes a great squirrel load.

Or an 80-grain pistol bullet ahead of gobs and gobs of 3031 makes for near-4,000 ft/sec if you're mad at coyotes.
