    Hey Helmut, thanks for the reply. Tell me what is the American designation for the powder you listed, S365. I don't recognize it.

    Sincerely,
    Dave (Bubba) Thornblom

    Anyone shooting the .30-06 would do well to read Mr. Salazar's articles. A wealth of info not currently available.

    The 06 isn't going away anytime soon. There are a LOT of folks shooting it in Garand matches.

    Those of you that have not tried Hornady's Garand Match ammo in guns other than a Garand really should. Crackin good stuff. VERY accurate with good terminal ballistics.

    No Garand pic is useful without a price!

    I'm afraid my budget just won't allow such a beauty. Congrats.

    I'll start a thread with more pics. Hint, It was a Pawn shop find.

    I found this load on Hodgdon's web site: 58.7 grains of Superformance powder with the 175 grain SMK get 2881 ft/sec ay 59,400 psi from a 24 " barrel. So that would be 2931 ft/sec from a 26" barrel. 53 grains of this powder gets 2609 ft/sec.

    I'm an '06 fan. Admittedly, mostly because of nostalgia.

    I'll be following your load development with interest.

    This summer I hope to experiment with mine using 178 grain AMAX and, 200 grain Accubond.
