I just dug out my Lee classic loader kit for my .30-06 and plan to start reloading again once i get a good scale. I have Hornady 150 grn SST Interlock bullets and IMR 4064 powder. I don't have the Hornady Manuel and since I don't reload other rounds yet, I was looking for the data from the Hornady manual, or other manual, for this specific caliber/bullet/powder combination. Any help is appreciated!

I had real good luck with that exact combo;really hard to beat in my book.I finally settled with a even 52.0 grains for my rifle but;start low and go from there and see what yor rifle likes.I have seen other data that goes higher than what hornady lists (up to 56 grains!) but I was getting 2960 fps with my load in my rifle with a 24 inch barrel with no pressure signs.

All of the powder companys have on line data.

Link to Hodgdon.

Confirm any load with published data that you get in a post. That includes any load I post.

I suggest you invest in Hornady's latest manual #8.


Thanks! I do already have the downloaded data from Hogden and I plan to get the Hornady manual. It's on my Christmas list actually :). Inlke this forum and the helpful people! Always learning.

Are you loading for the Garand or a bolt gun?
