    I started using these in a 7x57, short barrel. I wanted the most powder space at the highest velocity since this is not really a scorcher in the first place, and the short barrel limited the speed. It turned out that I got plenty of velocity, and the humble Sierra ProHunter was THE most accurate load I found, testing Nosler BT's, Hornady Interlocks and the boat tail version of the Sierra, among others. The deer just dropped. The 30/06 is a different load, granted, but that bullet will do what it's supposed to, no problem. I was using H414 BTW.
