What are some basic tips to keep in mind when reloading the.30-06 Springfield? The.30-06 Springfield remains one of the most versatile hunting calibers, and there are loads of options when it comes to handloading. The.30-06 will run on many powders, but the author prefers the slower-burning options, such as IMR4350 and Reloder 19 and 22 The author trims all cases, even new brass, to the.30-06's standard case length of 2.494 inches There are many pet handloads out there that will produce good results, but one of the most versatile involves 180-grain bullets (Sierra ProHunter or Swift A-Frame) atop 54.5 grains of IMR4350 The.30-06 Springfield remains one of our most popular hunting cartridges, even 110 years after its introduction. It’s a cartridge that can effectively use the full gamut of.30-caliber bullets, and, as you’ll soon see, is rather easy to load for. There is plenty of good.30-06 brass on the market, even when times are tough, and.30 caliber is one of our most popular. While the.30-06 has been produced in just about every action form conceivable, from single shots to autoloaders to pumps, the bolt actions are the most popular.

If you’re loading for a bolt gun or single shot, you may take full advantage of the neck sizing technique, but for the autoloaders, slides and any other action, you need to full-length resize your brass. How To Get Started Reloading A good set of dies, such as the RCBS full-length resize and seater dies, and an RCBS No. 3 shellholder, will do almost everything you need. The.30-06 runs on a standard large rifle primer, like the CCI200 or Federal No. 210, though I actually prefer the Federal Gold Medal Match GM210 primer. For powder choices, the Ought-Six will run on a multitude of powders, from the faster burning powders in the IMR3031 range, to the mediums like IMR4064, IMR 4451 and Reloder 15, to the slower burning IMR4350 and Reloder 19 and 22. The last group of powders is where I’ve found the best velocity and accuracy with most bullets. I like Federal and Norma cases for most of my loads. It will push the 125- and 130-grain bullets over 3,200 fps without much difficulty, yet the heavy-for-caliber 220-grain slugs will still leave the muzzle at 2,500 fps. Like I said, the ’06 isn’t a difficult prospect to reload. I’d like to share some of my favorite loads, some that have proved themselves in more than a few different rifles. Disclaimer I’m going to put this out there now, and you’ll see it many times in my column: Regardless of the load data I share with you, you must start at the bottom of the load data in your reloading manual and work your way up slowly, looking for pressure signs. You can’t just hop in at the data listed; it may not work well in your rifle, and all barrels are different. Favorite Handloads With a 125-grain Nosler Ballistic Tip, a perfect choice for coyotes and other varmints, I like to seat it over 55.0 grains of Alliant Reloder 15, for 3,275 fps. The Nosler Ballistic Tip is an accurate, if frangible, bullet, and this load has printed. MOA in many rifles.

The 150-grain bullet makes a good long-range choice for the ’06, especially with a premium bonded-core bullet. The Swift Scirocco II is one of my favorites, having a good, long ogive and an effective boat tail, in addition to a nice polymer tip to enhance the BC, often having a retained weight of 85-90 percent. The 165-grain bullets make a great all-around choice for most of our North American hunting, as well as a great African plains game bullet, if properly constructed. I’ve used a couple with good results. The Sierra Game King boat tail hollowpoint is a fantastic bullet for deer, bear and elk. I know, you’re thinking hollowpoint, and therefore extremely frangible, but the Sierra bullet has a thick jacket and is capable of handling even magnum impact velocities. I’ve used it on deer for years in a number of.30-caliber cartridges with nothing but fantastic results. It has shined in the.30-06 on top of 55.0 grains of IMR-4350, with a CCI200 primer, giving an even 2,700 fps at the muzzle and sub-MOA accuracy in a number of rifles. The 165-grain Nosler Partition is another favorite in the.30-06, and when mated with 57.0 grains of Reloder-19, sparked by a Federal GM210M primer, it makes a good choice for deer, elk and much of the African plains game. I’ve measured it at 2,725 fps to 2,750 fps, depending on the rifle, and it’s really hard to argue with the performance of the Nosler Partition. The 180-grain bullets are the staple in the.30-06, and there are a ton to choose from. I’ve used a pair that actually worked very well with the same powder charge. The Sierra 180-grain ProHunter, a flat-based spitzer, and the 180-grain Swift A-Frame, a flat-based semi-spitzer with a partition and a bonded core, both gave great accuracy and good velocity when sitting atop a load of 54.5 grains of IMR4350 and ignited by a Federal 210 primer. The Sierra came out at 2,650 fps, while the Swift A-Frame came into the world at 2,680 fps.

This combination could easily account for 95 percent of the world’s game, and that’s one of the beautiful features of the.30-06 Springfield. For heavier game, the 220-grain slugs make a good choice, especially at short to medium ranges. The.30-06 can push the heavy bullets up to 2,500 fps, but I found the accuracy at 2,400 fps on the button. A Hornady 220-grain round-nose InterLock over 52.0 grains of Reloder 19 gave groups of just under one-inch at 100 yards. Not too shabby for such a big slug, and good for just about anything you’d use a.30-caliber rifle for. Final Considerations While there are those that would argue with me, I don’t crimp bullets for the.30-06 unless I’m loading for a semi-automatic; I feel there’s enough neck tension to keep things in place. If you want to crimp, you can set the RCBS seater die up to give a good roll crimp, but be sure your bullet has a cannelure, or you’ll damage the bullet and have some serious feeding issues. I get one dummy cartridge setup to the proper seating depth, loosen the seater plug, and screw the die body lower, in small increments, until I see the crimp I want. I then use the dummy cartridge to help set the seater plug depth once again. One last caveat: There are many good sources for military ’06 brass on the market, but be careful when using them; the military stuff has a thicker case wall, and therefore a smaller combustion chamber, and it will reach higher pressure with less powder when compared to the commercial cases.

It replaced the.30-03, 6mm Lee Navy, and.30-40 Krag cartridges. The.30-06 remained the U.S. Army's primary rifle and machine gun cartridge for nearly 50 years before being replaced by the 7.62?51mm NATO and 5.56?45mm NATO, both of which remain in current U.S. and NATO service. It remains a very popular sporting round, with ammunition produced by all major manufacturers.The 1894 version of that cartridge used a 220-grain (14 g) round-nose bullet. Around 1901, the U.S. started developing an experimental rimless cartridge for a Mauser action with box magazine.Army regulations called for training use of the oldest ammunition first. As a result, the older.30-06 ammunition was expended for training; stocks of.30 M1 ball ammunition were allowed to slowly grow until all of the older M1906 ammunition had been fired. By 1936, it was discovered that the maximum range of the.30 M1 ball ammunition with its boat-tailed spitzer bullets was beyond the safety limitations of many military firing ranges. An emergency order was made to manufacture quantities of ammunition that matched the external ballistics of the earlier M1906 cartridge as soon as possible.It is ejected from the rifle after all eight rounds are depleted. It served the United States in both World Wars and in the Korean War, its last major use being in Vietnam.The Belgium armed forces used the round widely in the Korean war, where the.30-06 calibre FN-49 proved to be a superior weapon in terms of both accuracy and reliability to the American M1 Garand. The.30-06 FN-49 saw widespread use in the various wars in and around the Belgian Congo. The 30-06 FN-49 was also sold to the armies of Luxembourg, Indonesia and Colombia. Another customer was Brazil where it served the Navy.In 1908 the Model 1895 Winchester lever-action rifle became the first commercially produced sporting rifle chambered in.30-06 Springfield.

It is still a very common round for hunting and is suitable for large game such as bison, Sambar deer, and bear, when used at close to medium ranges.The later M1903-'06 was an M1903 converted to.30-06. This conversion was principally carried out at the Army's Springfield Armory arsenal repair shops.On the other hand, when loaded more closely to the original government spec,.30-06 remains within the upper limit of felt recoil most shooters consider 'tolerable' over multiple rounds, unlike the magnums, and isn't unnecessarily destructive of meat on game such as deer. With appropriate loads, it is suitable for any small or large heavy game found in North America. The.30-06's power and versatility (combined with the availability of surplus firearms chambered for it and demand for commercial ammunition ) have kept the round as one of the most popular for hunting in North America.After World War I, the U.S. military needed better long-range performance machine guns.A test done by Brass Fetchers shows that M2 AP can actually penetrate up to 0.5 in (12.70 mm) of MIL-A-12560 armor steel from a distance of 100 yards (91 m).Loads are available with reduced velocity and pressure as well as increased velocity and pressure for stronger firearms. The.30-06 remains one of the most popular sporting cartridges in the world. Many hunting loads have over 3,000 foot-pounds (4,100 J) of energy at the muzzle and use expanding bullets that can deliver rapid energy transfer to targets.Hodgdon, Nosler, and Barnes report velocities for 24 inches (610 mm) barrels. Hornady and Speer report velocities for 22 inches (560 mm) barrels. The data are all for barrels with a twist rate of 1 turn in 10 inches (250 mm) which is needed to stabilize the heaviest bullets. The higher muzzle velocities reported by Nosler for 165 grains (10.7 g) and heavier bullets use loads employing a slow-burning, double-base powder (Alliant Reloder 22). However, the greater cartridge capacity of the.

30-06 allows much more powerful loadings if the shooter desires.All sizes in inches The 8?64mm S is the closest European ballistic twin of the.30-06 Springfield.However, it remained in limited use in the army reserves and national guard for some time; Frankford Arsenal only stopped production in 1961 and Lake City Army Ammunition Plant was making.30-06 until the late 1970s, with new production batches in 1993 and 2002.Black paint has chipped off the tip of AP bullet during rough handling. The cannelure indentation around each bullet is where the leading edge of the case would be crimped into the bullet. The four spitzer bullets used in the.30-06 Springfield cartridge case were loaded with a nearly identical tangent ogive exposed for reliable functioning in self-loading firearms, while the earlier M1903 bullet is positioned to illustrate the longer neck of the preceding.30-03 cartridge. It had a steel core in a lead envelope with a partial cupro-nickel jacket which had an exposed soft tip. The exposed tip was designed to aid in the envelope peeling away on impact to allow the core to strike the target. It had the unintended effect of making the thin lead envelope an expanding bullet. Since expanding bullets were seen as violating the Hague Convention it did not see service in World War I. It replaced the AP M1917 round in service. It was the first armor-piercing round to have a black-painted bullet tip. It was replaced in 1939 by the AP M2, a redesign of the AP M1922. The tip of the M14 bullet is colored with a blue tip over a black ring. The M14A1 featured an improved core design and incendiary charge. The M14A1 bullet is colored with aluminum paint. The M1906 has a 9.7 g (150-grain) projectile and flat base. Its jacket is a cupro-nickel alloy which was found to quickly foul the bore. Though it had a lower initial velocity, velocity and energy were greater at longer ranges due to its efficient shape.

The harder bullet was made of seven parts lead to one part antimony. The jacket material was changed to gilding metal (an alloy of 95% copper and 5% zinc) to reduce fouling. It had a higher muzzle velocity than either of the earlier cartridges. It is derived from the M1903 blank, but with a resized neck. It has a paper bullet that contains a tiny black powder charge to aid in breaking it up. The cartridge is identified by having no bullet, having a cannelure in the neck of the case, and the crimp is sealed by red lacquer. This is still a current cartridge for ceremonial M1 Garands.The case has been tin-plated, fluted with six longitudinal indentations, and perforated three times in alternating indentations.The cartridge has six longitudinal corrugations and there is no primer. The T99 was never adopted. The cartridge is identified by a green bullet tip with a white ring to the rear of the green color. It was later renamed the Guard M1 in 1933 and was used for guard and sentry duty at defense plants and military installations during World War 2. FMJ pointed-nose bullet used for guard and sentry duty in built-up areas. The cartridge was originally marked with six cannelures in the middle, but this weakened the case and caused it to burst in a dirty rifle. It was later marked by six dents or flutes on the shoulder of the cartridge. Although production stopped in 1918, there were plenty of stocks of the oddball round left until the 1920s. As a result, the M1917 had a tendency to expand on impact. The M1917 had a blackened tip. The tip of the bullet is painted blue. The M1 has a red tip. Has a short burn time. The M2 originally had a white tip, but then switched to a red tip like the M1. It was ballistically matched to the ball M2 alternate. Designed to be less intense in terms of brightness than either the M1 or M2 tracers. The M25 had an orange tip. Blank cartridges utilize a full-size brass case and carry only a powder charge.

The M1 was a universal blank and rifle grenade cartridge that replaced the specialized rifle grenade (RG), chemical rifle grenade (CRG), and chemical warfare grenade (CWG) cartridges and was used with cup-discharger rifle grenade launchers. The M2 was an experimental cartridge used as a testbed; it used a propellant mixture of black powder and smokeless powder because it was feared that the smokeless powder would not reliably ignite by itself. The M3 was designed to be used with the M1 series (for the M1903 Springfield rifle ), M2 series (for the M1917 Enfield rifle ), and M7 series (for the M1 Garand rifle ) spigot grenade launchers and used a propellant that was a mixture of five grains of FFFG black powder and 40 grains of IMR-4898 smokeless powder. The British used American-made ammunition during the war, which was designated as cartridge S.A,.30 to avoid confusing it with their own.303 British service round. It was used after the war as belted machinegun ammunition by the Royal Armored Corps and was not declared obsolete until October, 1993. Marks of ammunition were originally designated with Roman numerals (i.e.,.303 Ball Mark VII), but were replaced with Arabic numerals by 1945 (i.e.,.303 Ball MK 7).It is marked with a purple annulus. It was normally packed in 20-round cartons. However, Commonwealth countries that used the M1 Garand (like Pakistan) bundled it in 16-round cartons that contained two preloaded 8-round Mannlicher-style en-bloc clips. It is marked with a red annulus and has a headstamp of.30 G1z. It is marked with a red bullet tip and has a headstamp of.30 G2z. It had green paint on its flutes. Although described and specified in a 1945 ammunition manual, no copies have been discovered. Military production was from the 1950s to the mid-1960s, while export production to French Union nations lasted until the late 1980s. Cartridge cases were softer than US specifications to prohibit their being recovered and reloaded by insurgents.

It had a cupro-nickel- or gilding-metal-clad steel jacket with either a brass or lacquered Parkerized steel case with a Berdan primer. The bullet is painted green to tell it apart from regular ammo. The bullet is painted or tinted blue to tell it apart from regular ammo. On the right is a mounted M1919 Browning machine gun with an attached box of linked.30-06 ammunition.
