    Nosler 180 Partition, 60 grains Reloder 19, 2700 fps, 9fps standard deviation.

    I really like the Hornady 220 RN with 55 grains of Reloder 22. This only gets about 2300 fps, but works great with aperture sights and hits game animals harder than anything I've seen out a .30 caliber.

    168 HPBT Sierra Matchking in front of 50 grains of IMR4350, Remington 9 1/2 primer. I just punch holes in paper with it... don't hunt with it any more.

    165 grain AccuBond over 48 grains IMR 4064 does the best for me.

    For a target load, either in a modern bolt target, vintage surplus, or Garand, 168 Sierra/Nosler/Hornady Match, 47.0 grs IMR 4895, LC cases, CCI #34 primer. OAL LT. 3.30"

    Shoots exceptionally well out to 600 yards.

    Factory loads? Plain ol' remington 165 PSP core-lockt. 100 yards, 3 shots, one hole out of my 700 BDL. Never lost a deer yet.

    Handloads? Still workin' on it. But H4350 is showing good results so far.

    Geez, what's wrong with you guys?

    Hornady 150 gr spire point, 4064 51 gr, CCI large rifle or Federal large rifle match, seated just off the lands, 2700 fps, 1/2-3/4 MOA from my 03A3 for hunting.

    LC brass from ol' USSR, Sierra 155 gr Palma match bullet, Federal large rifle match primer, and 46.6 gr 4895. About 2600 fps and about 1 1/2 MOA from my H&R Garand.

    Both loads have standard deviations in the teens.

    48.0 of H4895 with a Hornady 150gr SP. Right at exactly 2800fps, and never over 1 MOA in my Sears/Winchester 70.

    For deer and antelope I shoot a Sierra Gameking over 57.6 grains of IMR 4350. Excellent accuracy and good velocity. Other bullets that work well include (all 165 grain boattails) Hornady Interlock, Hornady SST, and Nosler Ballistic Tip.
