I was wondering if anybody had some data for T5070 in a .30-06? I know this powder is as slow as a snail going uphill. It's designed for .50BMG and so forth. But, I got this stuff free and I don't have anything with more powder capacity than a .30-06. I've looked on the web and can't find much. I called Thunderbird and they gave me data with 180 gr. bullets and said to use 64 gr. I bet its almost impossible to get that much in a '06 case. Anyway if somebody has any data let us know. Thanks.

Well I loaded up some of the 64 gr. loads with 180 gr. Hornady Spire Points and it shot good , but there was a little unburned powder in the bore. I even used CCI250 primers. I got 8lbs. of the stuff and want to use it. A friend has a 7mm Mag. and wants me to load him some and I found some good data for it using T5070.
