    30-06 Imp max

    I have just got this going this week, my new 30-06 Imp max.



    I took the 6 BRX barrel off my Barnard P, XLR Chassis & NSX 12-42 x 56 & put one of Dan Hardies new barrels on it, 30 cal, 33" 1-10 twist.



    I haven't fired many rounds through it yet but initial performance is pleasing to say the least, virtually no copper fouling with the Berger 230 Hybrids, .743 BC



    I have a suppressor as well as the T2 Terminator muzzle brake to play with in the weekend when I intend to do some more load development.



    I have a 280 & 30-06 Imp max in the works on Rem 700 platforms, it will be interesting to see how they stack up against each other

    Damn, looks like still doing nearly 1700fps at 1000, and over 1500 ft/lb's. Pretty damn capable LR package

    You can run 2209 with the light projectiles, RL17 gives better velocity.

    I only have data on me for LC 30-06 brass at 70.1 grains of water & my 30-06 imp max is 76-77 depending on brass used.
