Light load for .30-06

    An interesting usenet post from rec.guns: Bill Jungbauer wants to know some light .30-06 loads for him 13 year old son:


    My 13 year old son said he did not like his .243 anymore and talked me into
    getting him a 30-06. I plan on loading him some light loads to begin with.
    After looking at my load books, I see that the only noted light loads are in
    the Speer book. 150 grain bullet with either 42 grains of H4895 or 26-28
    grains of 5744. If I buy some 4895, what else is this powder good for? If I
    increase the dosage later, is it a reliably accurate load?
