sabot reloading for 30-06

Hylander50Hylander50 Member Posts: 1,396 ✭✭✭✭✭
Does anyone have any experience reloading .30-06 using sabots and .22 caliber bullets? I recently found a whole bunch of sabots at an estate sale for next to nothing. I'm considering loading them into some .30-06 cases using .22 caliber bullets. However, I cannot find any loading data for them. I tried a Google search; and, the data I found was sketchy, at best. I'd like to use Alliant 2400 powder as that is what I use for my regular loads. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

    You won't get top performance using 2400 powder but I guess you know that if you are already using it in a 30-06. Who's data are you using for your current loads? I have a data sheet I got with some sabots when I bought them but the data is not confirmed when I shoot over my chronograph. Velocity is always much less than the data advises.

    From an older Hornady manual they have a max load of 40.3 grains of 2400 with a 100 grain short jacket plinker for a 30-06. This is a clip of some data I found when looking for 30-06 data for sabots using IMR 4198 it was for 308 win as I could not find data for 4198 in 30-06

    This has been discussed here before so there should be some threads available through the Search button in the upper right. If I remember correctly, there are some links to load data also.

    I think this URL will work better:

    Best.

    Accurate Arms manual has data for 30/30, 308,3006, and 762x39.
