I' m looking for a good Elk Load recipe for my ' 06.
I' ve been using Hornady 180 gr. SP over 59.something gr. of IMR 4831. I' m not sure where I came up with this but I' ve used it for a while. The problem is that the particular bullet is harder to get than others so I' m wanting to do something different.
www.gun-tests.com/ go to Tools and Techniques, go to Ammo. There is a comparision of premuim bullets in the .30-06. Good info.
Any Barnes bullet. I was on the phone with Barnes a few days ago and they recommended the 168 gr. (triple shock) w/ the IMR4350 as the load most likely to yield the best results in the .30-06.

I was using the Barnes 168 gr XLC Bt but have switched to the 180 gr XLC BT at just a bit over 3000 fps . I haven' t tried them on elk yet but I have two tags his year so I have a feeling I will find out how they work .
