How accurate are these loads, i am planning to try some out on my new fifle in .30-06, just wondering if anyone has experience with these rounds. thanks

I got lazy one year and instead of reloading for hunting season bought a couple of boxes 140 gr for my Rem Mnt Rifle in 7mm Mauser.
Cronoed at the same speed as my reloads (~2850fps), and shot 3 rnds into 1.5 MOA. My reloads would do 1 MOA.

Killed deer just fine

I would not call it "magnum" but it was a lot hotter than most commerical available loads for the 7mm X 57mm Mauser.

I have used the 150 and 180 gr and was impressed with their accuracy. They did have more recoil than standard loads, but weren't bad. If they are accurate in your gun, then use them. Highly recommend.
