    Reloader 12 is pretty fast for 30-06 with anything but light bullets.
    And it is too fast to give top velocity with any bullet weight.

    I have some data from a 1992 Alliant handbook.

    What bullet weight are you wanting to use??

    This says a 150 Hornady & 48.0 grains MAX gives 2,760 FPS - 57,500 PSI.

    Reduce 10% for the starting load.
