180grn PP .30cal.

This .30-06 Ruger MKII has some new bullets to fire out. Noslers which I do not use often if at all in the .30cal. Many times I have deliberated on doing the AI in this rifle but hesitate. I have had good sucess with IMR4350 but now looking at RL22 for greater velocites but how accurate is this powder in this caliber? I wanted your input before I go an buy powder that is some 180 miles away. I too use a ProChrono. Is it too much to expect 2850fps for a average in this rifle with this bullet and still have good accuracies?

According to Alliant, 60 grains will give you 2700 FPS, and 60 grains is a 110% compressed load. That is heavily compressed. If you load to magazine length, you are better served with 4350 as it is gets you 2750 FPS with ease. R-22 is just too slow.
