I just read that they were taken down permanently. Unfortunate because there was some really great info on there. I wish I had printed them out.Hey Dave! German Salazar had a three part article on the .30-06 cartridge. I tried recently to go to the website again to re-read them. However, when I goto the website now it says that I do not have access to the site. Access restricted or something. Can you still access the articles?
Running that load through my QuickLoad app, that velocity looks about right (though I don't have all the details about that cartridge) and assuming a barrel length of 26". And looking at the calculated chamber pressure, the 59.3 gr of H4350 , is really high at around 68,500 psi. So . . . just FYIWell almost 3 years later and i'm back to working up a .30-06 load. Been a little distracted but i'm attending a long range clinic in Sacramento in a few weeks so i'm back at it. Tested out a few loads today, 175 gn TMKs, Lapua brass, H4350, seated .015 off the lands. Started at 57.8 grains and stopped at 59.3. Best groups were at 59 and 59.3, both were under 1/2 inch when you account for me pulling a shot or two. Started to get some slight ejector marks at 59.3 but nothing too crazy. I think I need a new chrono though because muzzle velocity was reading up to 3050 fps. Not sure if that's even possible with a 175 gn bullet. Going to load some more in the 59-59.3 range and see how it goes from there.
I bagged a 400 lb bull elk last year in AZ with my Rem 700 .30-06 from about 500 yds. Left in the dust? The only thing that left dust was the cow that was with it when this one fell after taking two steps.For the sake of a little pot stirring... compare the 30.06 to a 284win or 280AI. When comparing a 06 to a 308, it's easy to get lost in the fact its short action vs long. When you compare a 06 to its peers, it gets left in the dust by a wide margin.
