I've recently found a source for Lapua 170 gr D46 Rabbeted FMJ bullets, but I'm having a hard time finding any loading data for 30-'06 or .308.
Since Lapua discontinued production the D46-170 isn't listed in their manual.

If anyone has some numbers to use in a M1D (Commercial Brass) or M1A (LC Match brass) it would be a great help

TIA

It's basically just a FMJ BT bullet so you should not have any problem using load data for jacketed 168 or 170 grain bullets. As always you should work you loads up and watch for any over pressure signs. I've had some good luck with Varget and Sierra 168 BTHP for the 308 so you might want to give it a try. I usually keep my loads around 44 grains and this give velocities real close to the Federal Gold Medal Match. That is actually 2 grains from max but gives some real good accuracy. Sorry but I don't load for 30-06 so I can't help you there.
