    I use the same head in a 30-06 doing 3270fps and they are lightning bolts on scottish reds and sika.

    (Why am I always the Johnny RainCloud here??) How many times will it put two shots into a hole like that? Or was it just the once? You do know that statistically speaking, those two shots were a non event, right? It'd be a shame to hang your hat on a load that in reality gives 3.5 MOA but just happened to toss a couple at the same spot one time.~Muir

    I had a great load for nosler partitions. Shot two groups about an inch or so and thought I was good to go. After shooting a few more groups, just to be sure, it became clear the two groups were luck and the average group size was about 5 inches.

    A lot of what we do and know when reloading has no statistical significance.

    This is my load in a 30-06 it is very hot but shoots superb with no pressure signs out of my rifle.
    Just checked my data and its not 3270fps as stated it's 3170 fps.

    30-06
    Lapua brass
    fed 210 primer
    nosler 125bt head
    59gr Vit n140 (max listed as 56.2)
    OAL 3.307
    fps (chronoed) 3170fps
