I use IMR 4350 almost exclusively in my 06s. Win 760 is my back up if out of 4350.

For the M1 Garand: 4064, 4895, 2520, and 748

For the '03 Springfield and any bolt gun: all of the above plus 4350 for bullet weights above 180 grains.

For one powder to do it all: 4064 or 4895.

I tried varget imr 4895 h4350 and then i tried imr 4831. For the 155-165's the varget was the best. For the 178-180+ bullets it was the imr 4831 that worked best.

I will say that the 4831 was the worst metering powder i have ever used, but the results were simply amazing. I had four of the same numbers on my ten shot chronograph string.
