    Question:Remington of 30-06 Accelerator PSP 55 of gr.?
    I never used this cartridge . Who will prompt his real tasks and possibilities ?
    Is distance, ballistic coefficient, destructive power and destiny which ?
    Is it visible it is in a greater degree intended for VARMINT?
    Thank you for an answer .

    It was a varmint round only..It worked well enough in most rifles that I shot it in....but being a handloader I would much prefer to just load up some 110 gr. sierras or something on that order..I always saw them as a gimmick sorta like the only difference in men and boys is the cost of the mens toys. :):)

    Unique question which I set itself acquiring the
    cartridges of Remington Core-lokt PSP 180 grain and 220 grain, -cost of unit of such cartridge for us $1.66,- why, why cartridges of Remington of 30-06 Accelerator PSP 55 of gr. does stand at our market $2.45 for unit?

    ...I agree Ray the 110 gr bullet is a much better round. I bought 250 of those 55 gr accelerators years ago. The velocity was great - 3873 fps but they made the barrel hotter than hell & the accuracy was never near as well as my 22/250, at about 1 1/4" at 100 yds! It also was no pleasure cleaning as I had lots of copper fouling to deal with!! Something I never had with any other bullet in this gun.
    ...If I was going to go prairie dog hunting & needed an extra rifle to cool down the barrel I would maybe load a few up again. Otherwise I decided long ago to use the 30/06 for what it is intended & use a varmint rifle for what it intended for!!

    I tried them as well and my experience was similar to Calhoun's.

    I'll use my .22-250 if I want to shoot a light, fast bullet.

    Thank you.

    Thank you boys for an answer.
    I think that even bullet weighing in a 150 grain very well will walk up for varmint.
