If I had to chose one powder for the 30-06 in a bolt gun, it would be IMR4350. If I could have 2 powders I'd add H4831 for the 180s and up. If a semi-auto is in the rquation then IMR4895 or H4895 would get a look for the 150-180s.LJLKRL said:Wow, thanks for the replies. It sounds like the 150 GK might not be the best bullet to use on deer, but if I try to keep it around 2800 fps it might be ok.
I'm going to load some up since I have the powder and bullets already, and see what they do at the range this weekend. I usr RL22 in my .270 with excellent results, and I read RL19 was "the powder" for an '06.
We'll see Saturday.
