| | I am guessing it's a 30-06
I prefer 165gr loads in my 30-06s. I use the starting loads in the Nosler book and have very good luck creating an accurate load that seems to work in all 30-06s I have tried it in. I did, and would load again 180gr Partitions if I was returning to Idaho for Elk again. I think that the 30-06 firing 180gr loads are perfect for Elk at 0 to 200 yards. When I didn't reload I shot Remington core-locks in 165gr my rifle liked them.
