Good Afternoon,

Working on loading some 30-06 with IMR 4895 for my M1. I am using some Hornady 155gr HPBT match w/ cannelure. I just realized that cartridge isnt in my Hornday reloading data. What would be a good COL for this? Or more so a max/min?

When in doubt OP just seat by eye-ball to the center of the cannelure to start... then measure and record if acceptable.


MY M1A likes those bullets seated to the center of the cannelure not crimped

I've set mine

I've shot those from my M1 and my 03A3 and set at 3.240 COAL. But what is stated above is a good start.
You will have to play with it to see what your rifle likes.

GENERALLY you want as long as they will fit in the magazine and feed/chamber reliably. For me that's about 3.25-3.3."
