Have never reloaded any 30 cal before so looking for some good starting points for hunting ammunition that does well off the bench too. Im a big fan of the barnes bullets in my other cals but not set on them. Also, i've read that H4350 is a great powder for 30-06, seeing if yall agree/disagree and whats yalls favorite powder/bullet combo.
Thanks for the help!

After trying tons of bullets and powders I keep coming back to 180gr SGK and whatever flavor of 4350 I can find. Is is a combo that just works in my two 06's. Outstanding accuracy for paper and steel and wonderful on-game performance at '06 velocities. Being easy on the wallet is just a bonus.

There are many, many .30-06 loads out there that are really excellent. IMR 4064, RL15, and Varget are great with 150 grain bullets, and H/IMR 4350 is great with 180 grain bullets. RL-17 can also do some pretty interesting things with 180 grain bullets if you have a little time to experiment.

IMR4064 and IMR4350 powders have been winners for the 30-06 for years

I use IMR 4895 and am playing with IMR 4064 with 150 grain bullets in the Garands. I have ported gas valves in them.
Find the sweet spot for your particular Garand and truly wonderful things happen. cheers

I have PERSONALLY found that 48 grs of IMR4064 with a 180 Sierra Match King to be the best accuracy round that I've found for a bolt action 30-06.

There may be better ones and your mileage might vary.
