    Parker hale 30.06 reload OAL

    This is for anyone reloading 30.06 with a parker hale.
    What distance from lands do you generally find best?

    Somewhere shorter than magazine length. Not being a smart a$$ but no one else's OAL will likely be the right one for yours. Start with magazine length and work inward until you hit a sweet spot.~Muir

    Thanks muir, just fishing to see if there is a general tolerance range with parker hale like for instance with the cz 527 hornet people generally load the 35gn v max between 1.720 and 1.750 OAL

    Might seem simple but measure what shoots well in it at the moment and work from there.

    Surely this will depend on bullet shape/make?
    Interestingly I find my old PH .308 seems to like a COL of 2.750" for the three different weights and makes tried so far!
    150 grn Sierras, 165 grn Hornady and 180 grn Corelokt.
    A fascinating thing, load development.
