Welcome to the 'Nest herbdelong,

You can access load data at the Denel Somchem website. Here's a link for that:

http://www.dlswc.co.za/Reload/default.asp

If you can't access it, let me know which of their powders you plan to use and I'll cut and paste some data for you.

evad & lost...it's a South African company.

Stay safe....shoot straight. ten

Check out www.somchem.co.za for reloading data on your 30.06, if you dont find anything there, let me know and I will help. Somchem is a South African powder manufactured on contract by and for a subsiduary of the SANDF. Have been using it for 8 years now on 22.250 and 7mm Rem Mag cal with good results. It is a quality product!
