Gents,

Looking for accuracy loads for my Van Orden rifle. The rifle will have a 24" Douglas 1:10" twist barrel and a .30/06 Serengeti match chamber.
Any load data using 168 gr., 175 gr., and 190 gr. Sierra Match King bullets would be appreciated.
While I'm well versed in loading the .308 I have little experience loading the .30/06 for match/sniper use. Hence, my questions.
Thanks in advance...

Wes

The Van Orden original literature stated the rifle was “tuned” to 180 gr projectiles. My Van Orden performed well with 180 gr 30-06 from a bench rest. I tried Garand M2, greater spread. If your clone has the same length barrel as an original, I would consider 180 gr projectiles as a starter point.
