30-06 SPRINGFIELD TARGET LOADS

The following data was developed in a Hall actioned rifle that has a number of barrels chambered for different cartridges, ranging from the 22-243 Improved, 308 Winchester, 30 Special and the 30-06 Springfield. The 30 Special is based on the 7 x57 Mauser case necked up to 30.

All the barrels mentioned above are stainless steel, heavy, match from Hart. The one for the 30-06 is 26 inch long.

We installed a Leupold 6.5 20 Vari X scope in Jewel Live Center rings on Kelbly bases.

Remington brass was used throughout our tests and Federal 210M primers.

All groups are 5 shots at 100 yards. Bullets were seated to just touch the rifling.
