    Tentman,
    Just grab a base model Merkel K3 or K95 in 7x65, .30/06, 7 mm RM or .300 WM like @stug or our west coast man and your good to go.

    178 gr ELDX with 58 grs Superformance for 2781 fps AV out of a Ruger American 22 inch barrel. First group I shot went into an inch and at the same point of impact as my previous load with 180 gr Noslar BT s using 57 grs Ar 2209 which is max in my rifle , I would drop a couple of grains and work up to that in your rifle.

    Ha - yes I'd love a K95 or the like and have fondled a couple - but I'm a quantity over quality sort of gun-nut!

    In this order all look to get 2800fps or over in a 22" barrel with 180gr pills and I'd say Superformance would be close

    I shoot a Sako 85 30/06 with Shilen Select Match barrel at 23 inches.

    It's a good rifle, have shot Tahr out to 500yards and its bloody accurate with the 165gr Sierra Gamechangers ai biff out of it.

    Tentman, i changed over to an 06 quite a while ago as my allrounder, 1st with an R8 and now a carbon light which beretta got in for me, it is absolutely great and consistantly shoots out to 650 with no worries. Spent a lot of time load developing and and ended up with 2209 and Barnes TTSX 168gr, tried the 165 and they just didnt go as good as longrange, i was hesitant at 1st going to the 06 but love it as an allrounder now.

    @Blackmac possibly it insnt chambered in a t/c encore or.also possible the recoil in such a light system is starting to get a bit much.
    Only guessing though
    He might also have shit loads of 3006 stuff or maybe just wants to have a play with one
