Will I see a difference between these in my Bartlein 1-10 barreled Savage 30/06 at 400-600 yards?
If both are loaded to similar pressure, the 190 will show a bit less wind drift, and the 175 will have a slightly flatter trajectory. Both will work great out of a 1/10. Which one of these two (both are somewhat obsolete) will work better for you, depends on your intended use, and your particular barrel.
Honestly, which ever one shoots smaller groups at 100 will be the better one at 600.
I've used both in 308win and can't say one is better than the other, but the 190 liked it above 2,700 fps.
For the good ol ought SIX, I would definitely start with the 190.
Following powders would be best in my opinion...
and maybe H-4831sc
How does IMR 4064 do?
My 1903a4 absolutely loves 190 smk and h4350. Scary accurate load and very mild
Good for low pressure M1 Garand type loads, but too fast for modern pressure loads. You will pressure out before you see top velocity.
I agree with what Meangreen said.
It's a little fast burning for 190's, so the case will not be as full as with the other powders. However, Hodgdon has data for 190's with imr4064 so it's worth a try if you already have some on hand and don't have any of the other one's I've mentioned.
190 gr Hornady BTSP
Start - 45 gr
Max - 47.7 gr
Thanks for the info!!
My rifle (1/12 30”) favorite load for 1K matches is 190 SMK’s moly, 44.3 IMR-4064, Winchester brass, Federal 210M primer at 2720 FPS.
