4350,4064,4895, Varget, RL19.

FWIW the 4831 is a tad on the slow side, but still useable.

There are no absolutes

Myself, I shoot a bolt action '06 and use mostly IMR 4350, but have also used IMR 4895. I read somewhere that IMR 4895 was pretty much developed for use in auto-loading rifles in 30-06, the garand. Something about it lent itself to the application moreso than the slower burning stuff. Those fellas have been making good accounts of themselves using it in the long range service rifle competitions for many years. Also some people like H 4350 SC.

All you need is IMR 4350....This is one of the top powders for the good old 30-06...

X5 on the IMR 4350, if you like ball then H414 or W760 behind a 180g. Tough to beat as an allrounder.

Chuck Norris and Mr. T walked into a bar. The bar was instantly destroyed, as that level of awesome cannot be contained in one building
