    I have some 150 grain interlocks and I am wondering what your most accurate powder combo for 150 grain bullets in the 30-06?

    Thank you

    Depends on the rifle.

    In my M1 Garand and 1903A3, I use IMR-4895 with 150 grain bullets.

    My hunting rifle is loaded with 165 grain BTSP, but I use H-414 for this load.

    For a 150gr bullet in the 30-06 I use 4895 or IMR4064.

    Minnesota,

    I use H-4350 in the .30-06. My load for my current .30-06 59.5gr of H-4350 with the Sierra 165 SBT and CCI BR2 primers. Velocity is 2830 fps. Five shot group at 100 yards measures .247". I have had quite a few .30-06 over the years and I've never failed to get fine accuracy from them.

    H-4895.

    You mean there are other rifles than the Garand chambered for 30-06!:)

    I got cloverleaf 100yd groups from a cold barrel with 150gr Nosler BTs and Varget in my Remington 700.

    I use Hornady 150 Gr. SST's in my Rem 700. Best load I've found is 51.0 grains of IMR 4064 with Fed 210 primers. Super accurate and gives about 2875 fps at the muzzle (24" bbl). Also had good success with Varget and 150 grainers in that gun. Good luck!

    IMR 4350 in my 24 Inch Winchester Mod.70 The load I use is from an old Lyman book and is no longer shown. This was a load shown as one of their "accuracy" loads.
