      Hey mate. I read a reply on the Barnes TTSX for the 30-06. I have been loading 165grain with 4350 and have been getting varying degrees of success. I have only been seating them .050 off which I need to play with from further ready. I did also read on Barnes's website that the recommend the 168's for 30-06 as the bullet taper is better suited, any experience with this?

      Divernhunter,
      Owner of a tikka t3 6.5x55. Can across your Swede Loads post where you were offering up information on loads you've use previously. Looking to reload for Mature Bull Elk (700+lbs). Shot distances within 200yds. Curious to know what you have loaded up in the 140-160gr range. I'm looking forward to learning from your experience. Really appreciate your help. My email: mattpeschke@hotmail.com.

      Divernhunter, I would love any reloading data on the 6.5x55. I have a Winchester M70 Featherweight and it weights 7lbs...... I also have a 264 win mag with a Hart barrel that is a tack driver out to 400yds.
      That is as far as I can shoot on my land.....

    Fun shooting/Scuba diving/ welding/travel/collecting firearms especially mil surplus/reloading rifle and pistol rounds/Hotrods/ drag racing and boat drag racing/reading
