RE: Load suggestions for Remington 760 30-06.
I have a 30-06 carbine pump model. I do use the small base dies, but I do not doubt what the other posters have said. I just happened to have the SB dies, so that is what I use. I shoot the 200 grain sierra Game King in my rifle. I do not have any magazine problems with the Sierra bullet, and it is truly a hard hitting package. I consider it a woods rifle, but shots to 250 or 300 yards is not a problem. Look real close at the big bullets, the 30-06 likes them, so let the "big dog eat". And I know you have heard me say this before, but don't waste your money on those expensive bullets. The 200 grain Sierra can hanldle it all(IMO) for a lot less money. And IMO they are more accurate(just my experience).
The 200 grain bullet comes out of my 18-1/2 carbine barrel at 2500 fps. You can use any of the traditional 30-06 powders. The "06" is not very finicky. However I have been getting good velocity out of RL22 with 165 grain bullets in my other "06's". Tom.

We need to stop using these terms today, "Sniper Rifle", "Tactical", "Assault Weapon".
