    30-06 Imp

    Its been a busy weekend

    This is the second 30-06 improved I have built, the first was a test piece on a Rem 700 SA to get an idea of performance.



    It has all the usual light bits on a Rem 700 LA, it weighs 8.4 lbs, 3.790 with the Night Force SHV & Hardy suppressor.



    Being a 30 cal man the client wanted a bit more grunt than his 308 & not as much as his 338.



    This one doesn't go quite as fast as the first one, a slow barrel I guess, it still has pretty good performance all the same.



    Recoil is moderate with the suppressor & basically non existent with the T2 Terminator muzzle brake fitted, bit noisy though.

    I also did some velocity testing with 208 Amaxes, 215 & 230 Target Hybrid Bergers, the results were very impressive

    I can see me building another longer barrelled version in the near future

    Maybe build a .30 Gibbs instead!

    Dies for the Gibbs are "interesting" to get hold of

    A nice performing 30 cal you have there
    1000yds is fun, 1500yds is getting interesting, 2000yds is exciting, 2500yds will blow your mind

    Impressive!
    Why aren't these more prevalent?
    7mm mag performance and cool.

    Have only shot it with the T2 Brake or the suppressor so couldn't really say, but it shouldn't be too bad with the lighter projectiles, not sure about the 230s though

    What length barrel is req to get the improved speed with the 168s and above? Also how do it compare to like a 280 imp with similar weights etc.. just curiosity mostly. Thanks

    I have only tested a few barrels, 20" wsa a little disappointing, 26" works well, I will be trying a long one in the future.

    The 30 cal will go faster than the 284 in the same case with the same weight projectile.

    Its terminal performance should be better short-medium (normal hunting) range, its BC will be less, assuming same type of projectile.

    I will have a Rem 700 280ai shortly so will have a better idea of comparative performance.
