Is there a maker of .30-06 ammo with 175gr. BTHP rounds loaded in? I know Federal makes a 168gr. version, but I haven't been able to find a 175. And could this ammo, if found by anyone, be cheaper than $1.00 per round?

Roll YER OWN. I dont know of any sources for 175 gr bullets though. 178's maybe?

175 gr Sierra Match King. It's used in the 7.62X51 mm M-118LR cartridge. No loadings that I know of in .30-'06. Very good bullet and current.

Crap! I gotta handload my own.... That sucks... Then again, it will probably be a good way to pass the time. I just need a reloading kit, a manual on how to do it ( looking at Speer ), and some working loads for the .30-06..... Is reloading very difficult at all? Here is what I'm thinking- -Remington .30-06 brass -CCI 450 primers -175gr. BTHP Sierras -No friggin clue what kinda powder or how much

Get the Lyman Reloading Manual. Your most accurate load is rifle dependent but the manual probably has an idea. It probably won't be at the high hot end but a little below that. You'll have to fiddle with the loads, it'll be fun.
