    That rth guy is pretty helpful.

    Looks beautiful.

    30-06 167 grain Lapua from the CMP shot well in mine.

    I bought cases of FGMM 168 when it was available at a good price.

    Going to be working up some different loads soon using IMR powder and likely a 168 or 175 SMK.

    I picked up 10-12 pounds of 4350 from a member here at a fantastic price. I thank @brianf for reaching out to me as it was surplus to his needs.

    I just finished up the dregs of my 4064 intending it for my Garand - 48 grains, 168 SMK, HXP 1X, WLRP, about 3.3 COAL.

    Fired it yesterday and looks promising.

    The 4350 is dedicated for my bolt 30-06.

    As my Model 70 isnt done yet Ill use one of my 03s as the test bed.

    Expecting great accuracy with fuller case volume.

    for my hunting 06 rds i tried a load years ago if i remember right it was 53 grs of 4064 and 150gr hornaday spire point i will have to check my books to make sure. i read it in a book as it was jack O'Conner's favorite hunting load for the 06. it is a compressed load and it shoots amazingly in 5 different 06s i tried it in and the results on deer sized game is drt. its a max load and you have to work up to it as its over max in some books but i still use it as my go to load.
