150 Gr.Hornady .308 Spire Pt./in a 30-06? Varget?

Would anyone have a Hornady Load book that would send me the data for this bullet/powder combo?
I am running low on IMR-4895,but have a good amount of Varget and would like to try it with this powder!

Aswallace911-I go there once in a while but all they listed was Nosler Bullets and i don't shoot them.
Farmerbrown- I like IMR 4064 also,but not in my 30-06s. My 308 Wins and 150 Gr.Sierra bullet shoot like match rifles.

I've used a lot of 4064 in 30-06's with 150's and good results.

I have IMR 4064 but my 06s didn't like it. They thrive on IMR 4895? Also i have a good supply of Varget and want to see how it will perform in an 06!

Re: 150 Gr.Hornady .308 Spire Pt./in a 30-06? Varget?

That's interesting. 51.5gr 4064 and a Hornady 150gr SP seated mid-cannelure has shot at least 1.5" at 100 in mulitple 30-06's, and some have gone a lot smaller.

I know folks have run Varget, but I think it's more frequently found used in shorter/faster rounds?

I haven't tried it.

This is where QuickLoad is invaluable...when you need to combine specific bullets and powders, and looks like that's what was posted above...QL data.

Love that software!
