View Full Version : 30-06 Recipes

November 1, 2009, 11:11 AM
was looking for some recipes for 30-06 sierra 180 gr game king HPBT with Hodgdon 4895 powder like to load my own and just started this one.
Plus I have found a lot of info for Hornaday not so much for sierra. I use 4895 for my other rifles. And want to stick with it.
thank you.

My Hodgdon book sez 44.0 grains of either H4895 or IMR 4895 with a 180-grain bullet results in 2,600 ft/sec at 50,000 CUP.

FWIW, while I've mostly used 4064 through the years, I fairly recently found that H414 gave best results for both velocity and tight groups.

The 180 oughta be a good elk load. I've always used a 150-grain Sierra for deer. While you can drive the SPBT a bit too fast, the flat-based spitzer won't blow up on a close-range shot.
