Mr. Gates,

In my experience, those Ruger rifles have large fairly sloppy chambers.   The ones that I've rechambered to Ackley Improved versions of their original chamberings have required setting the barrel back two full turns before having enough meat to make a nice tight chamber.  

Those chambers are loose enough that you could chamber .312" bullets in your brass if the throats weren't too tight!  Your '06 will do great without having to neck turn or ream the brass.... a sure thing!

You'll enjoy shooting some cast in that rifle... all the Rugers I have used cast in shot very well with properly fit bullets.

God Bless,

Marshall

I would highly suggest getting a Lyman "M" die for the necks on those .30-06 cases you're going to shoot cast in, or a die of similar characteristics from another manufacturer.

Also, a good, heavy inside champher on the case mouths makes a real difference as well.

I doubt you'll have any problems seating those pills!

God Bless,

Marshall
