    How does H335 fare in 180gr .30-06 loads? Thanks.

    I sincerely believe you should acquire one or more good reloading manuals and read them throughly. I am more than glad to help anyone out on a reloading problem or question, but you have posted approx. 10 or 12 questions in the past several days that could be answered by looking up this information in a reloading manual. I'll be glad to help you if you ever do have a serious problem, but will no longer respond to your questions that can be found in a manual. I think many THR members might feel the same way. :banghead:

    Yep.

    We are happy to help those who try to help themselves, but, in general, are not interested in continually spoon feeding.

    Thanks for answering my question... not!

    I ask legitimate questions and am continually bashed. I am inquring about real world performance of the loads in which I am interested. Instead of getting answers, I am told that I should look elsewhere. A manual will not necessarily tell me what Average Joe thought of the load. If you want to answer a question that I post, then answer it. If you have no answer, then move on. You are not helping me nor anyone else by saying to look elsewhere. I am an educated person and will make my own decisions. However, if I ask for advice, experiences, etc., I do not expect to be redirected elsewhere. THR is one of many sources from which I can gain information. I ask the questions that I ask with the intent of gaining valuable real-life knowledge. However, I have been gained nothing but confusion and frustration. Instead of filling up my thread with BS, just answer the question posed. If you have experience directly related to the question, then please, by all means share. Otherwise, do not waste up space on the thread.

    It is a simple question that can be answered with a simple yes/no and brief explaination: is H335 good for use in 180gr .30-06 load?

    Nice rant - could have looked up the Hodgdon load tables in less time than that entry required.

    Alternatively, or in addition, you could invest in a Lyman manual and peruse all the 30-06 loads and, as an intelligent person, figure out just where 335 fits in the scheme of things.

    I have the Hodgdon load tables and have had them the entire time H335 is on the load tables. Just because it is on a load table does not mean that it is good or bad.

    I am asking for constructive feedback. For instance, a good response to my question would be, "I have used H335. I like it. It works very well. Good luck," or "I have used H335. It gives bad groups. It would not be my first choice. I would recommend ______ instead."

    I will not tolerate inconsiderate posts or posts without constructive content.

    While Hodgdon is one of my favorite powder co's I feel they can be generous when it comes to listing powders for a given cartridge,(as others do). What I mean is you see some powders listed that don't get used a lot by the rank & file loaders. For 180 grn 30-06 loads I'd go right to H4350.

    I like h335 for 7.62x39 to 06/308 class rounds particularly with up to 165 grn projectiles. But alas I don't shoot 180 grn bullets.


    I will however say that in cartridges of this size h335 has a tendancy to be quite loud and produces some spectacular muzzle flashes.

    Simple answer, H-335 is too fast for -06 180 grain loads.

    Complex answer, you want shortcuts to accurate loads. TANSTAAFL! There Ain't No Such Thing As A Free Lunch! Whether any load of H-335 worked in someones rifle means nothing to you. It just means it worked well in HIS. Again, look in any reloading manual. They mostly give powders in the order of velocity, the load on top is usually the fastest. Some manuals put an * next to the load that was the most accurate, or the most consistent. That's a good place to start. If you don't have that powder, then either get some or try something else.

    Coming at us with an attitude like the quote above will get you ignored!:fire:

    Well, you certainly put us in our place by not tolerating answers from people who have probably forgotten more than you'll ever know about reloading. I have a feeling you have never pulled the handle even once. Lose your attitude and you'll get much further in this hobby.

    For what it's worth, nobody got consistant good accuracy from a .30-06 with ball powder when it was "the" cartridge used in competition. Extruded powders always produced more accurate loads.

    IMR4064's probably the best powder, accuracy wise, for bullets 160 to 180 grains, IMR4350 for heavier ones and IMR4895 or Varget for lighter ones.

    But any powder can shoot any bullet out of a .30-06 rifle.

    "Thanks for answering my question... not! I ask legitimate questions and am continually bashed."

    Well, perhaps many of your questions really aren't continually legitimate?

    Most of us are quite willing to "help" anyone but seems on the one hand you are a well educated person who makes his own decisions and yet you frequently post questions that amount to asking to be spoon fed very basic data.

    Excuse us, guess more of us should stay out of your path? Anyway, I sure will.

    It'll do, but you have to work up the load for your rifle.

    Generally considered too fast for the '06. H335 works ok in 308, but really shines in the smaller cases of the 30-30 and 223.

    H335 30.06

    I use H335 in my 150 grain 30.06 and it's pretty good. I do think that H335 is a much better powder for .223, but it will work with the 30.06. My manual has a 180 grain bullet at 42 grains of h335 to start and not to exceed 46. That's from the Lee Modern Reloading 2nd edition. Like you, I ask questions here all the time and it's usually the same group of bullies heckling to get a manual... we're not gonna do it for you...etc. They're like Statler and Waldorf from the muppets and can be ignored. Some of them are genuinely concerned about your safety and will tell you if something is just plain dangerous, but this question was completely valid and should have gotten a response like this.

    If you watch any youtube shooting videos these are the same guys offering advice on how people should be standing.... granted your stance won't blow your face off :) and this can.
