Default .30-06, 165 gr. Nosler Partitions

My friend is going to let me use his reloading bench soon to load some shells. I will be loading a deer/bear/antelope load, using the 165 gr. NP. What are some good powders to use with this bullet in .30-06?
My rifle is a Savage 110. Thanks.

I use Imr 4064 or Imr 4350 for 165gr in my 30-06 ,Seem to get a little better accuracy with the 4064 .

CHARLIEBROWN,
I have had great result with Hodgdon H-4350. I have just finalized a load with the Nosler Partition 165 grain bullet, CCI #BR-2 primers. Five shots at 100 yards went into .247" center to center. I used a Sinclair case gauge to determine the length in my rifle at 2.517". To reach that case length I used .270 Win. cases. The load was 59.5 grains. velocity was 2832 fps. I like the Hodgdon powders because they are not sensitive to temperature changes. The load I work up in the middle of the summer is the same load I shoot during hunting season. I hope that this is of some help. Good luck.

charlie, I use reloader 22 & reloader 19, H414 is also good. I've experimented with the 165 NP and the accuracy was good, around an 1", but I tend to get better groups with different bullets.

Good luck & Good shooting

DG- the reason I am going to use the Partition bullet is because I will not be around this summer after my bear hunt in Montana. I will have about 2 1/2 weeks from the time I get back from MT, until I leave for AZ for the summer. I will be coming home less than a week before I will be going to WY for antelope if I draw the tag. Just long enough to go check my zero. I just don't have the time to build new loads for each animal that I plan to hunt. I picked the Partition because it is probably the best all around bullet to use. Just for the record, last year, I shot my deer at 325 yards with a Core-Lokt at about the same velocity. The first shot was about 350 yards and it went high, but in perfect alignment with the chest, I just held slightly too high. The Core-Lokt has much worse BC than the Partition, so I would be confident to take a shot that long with it, even though that long of a shot isn't the norm. The longest my dad has ever shot an antelope at is about 200 yards. With a point blank range of close to 300 yards, I don't think there will be a problem with hitting anything that I want with this bullet. I hope this answered your question.

P.S.- thanks everybody for the replies, It looks like I will be using H-4350 for the variances in temps it can handle.
