Default 308 + 30-06 a good powder?

So I have two of the most popular calibers 308 and 30-06 I am looking for a good accurate Powder that will work good between both calibers around or between 160gr to 180gr bullet I've been doing some research like any reloader should but was looking for other opinion on it also. thank you very much

I load both .30-06 and .308. IMR-4064 works well in both of them for the bullet weights you mentioned.

I agree!, i don't load either anymore but i use to load for both and if only using one powder it's hard to beat IMR4064. Others that would be a close second are IMR4350, 4895 and 4831, these have worked with both as well.

IMR 4831 and 4350 should give you better velocity.

I load my 06 with IMR4064. But IMR4350 or H4350 also are good powders for both the 06 and 308
