30-06 sprg


Registered Users do not see the above ad.


I plan to load my 30-06 brass with H4831.
Using these 3 projectiles (.308)
Hornady v max 110 gr.
Hornady 110 gr. SP
And
Sierra 110 gr. HP

I did not find a powder mix for my situation.
Will someone advise?

I'm thinking around 53.1gr

That's because H4831 is for heavy bullets not lightweights. It is the powder to use with 180gr bullets.

For 110gr bullets, look to H4895, IMR 3031, 4064.

Yes. Using a powder that slow with bullets that light can ring a barrel or even extinguish and leave a bullet stuck in the bore as an obstruction which, if you don't notice the problem occurred, can burst the gun on the next attempt to fire it. So there's potential danger from trying to use a powder that slow with the light bullet.

Even though Hodgdon lists them, having measured secondary pressure spikes by strain gauge when using powders too slow for the bullet weight, and knowing the pressure measure method used by SAAMI doesn't detect them, so Hodgdon would not be aware of them, I would stick with the IMR 3031 and Benchmark loads they list. For lighter loads, switch to IMR 4198, 40-46 grains.

Great information thank you.

I see they list the 90 gr 243 as a usable load for h2831. What you think?

this is a strange question, not being answered properly IMHO...H110 and 296 are not powders for 300 win mag under any circumstanes IMO or any rifle IMO short of cartridges like the 38-40 and 44-40 for instance that are both rifle and pistol cartridges...

RL-19, 22 and 25 are, IMR 4831 and H4350 are rifle powders that fill or come close to filling a 300 Win. case and that in itself prevents dropping a double charge, it also gives the best accuracy and highest velocity...Just examples, lots of other powders like WW-760, IMRs etc.

My answer is based on the assumption that I didn't miss anything in the original post, it seem perhaps I did??

For the 300 Win. Mag and the .338 simplify your life, use RL-22, RL-19...It meters smooth with no cutting, gives you the most velocity with most bullet weights, especially the heavier bullets like 180 and 200s in the .300 and 210, 225 and 250 in the .338., even the 300 in my .338s...I have a lot of old surplus 4831, the stuff that Jack O'Connor used and its a great powder velocity wise and its accurate, but you must weigh every charge as it won't meter worth beans..

Yes. The OP was asking if two powders were comparative in burn rate, similar to......

"Are Win. Supreme 780 and Hodg. Superformance possiblly the roughly same powder. About like H110--- and Win 296"

Yes, the "About like…" is ambiguous, as it doesn't make clear whether it refers to burn rates or to the twin natures of different pairs of powder numbers. In this case it means the latter.

I have a 30-06 Ackley Improved Rem 700 and I really never was impressed with it until I worked up a load with the Superformance powder and a magnum primer and it has finally made the 30-06AI all worth it, I am now getting 3,140fps with 165gr SST bullets without any stiff bolt or any other pressure sign.
