    I use 165 grain sierra game kings over 54 grains of N160 and get great groups.

    I have had some done for me.

    first batch were
    150gr Sierra soft points, 52gr of H380. These were doing 2650fps.
    New batch
    150gr Sierra soft point, 55gr of h380. These are now doing 2825fps.

    They will sub 1" if I do my bit.

    This is through a T3 lite stainless with a 20" barrell and a JET Z on the front

    About 60 years ago, an American gun writer opined that a man could set out to test every already established load for the 30-06, testing two of them every week, and die of old age before he reached his goal. His advice, when asked this same question, was to choose the appropriate bullet weight, pick a powder, and set to work.~Muir

    (I like 4895 for lighter bullets, 4350 and then 4831 for the heavier bullets.)
