    Are you coating your round balls in anything? That one flyer you had with the 53 grainers could be lead fouling

    Mike this was an excellent video i love rifle gallery type loads for fun keep up the fun reloading.

    I have never went that light with a bullet in 3006. I have loaded 30 carbine bullets but that is the lowest weight I went. I would think those are screaming out of there at that weight. I have trail boss and only loaded it in 4570 ,,,,filled the case to the bottom of the bullet. And what a disappointment I’m not a fan of trail boss.

    I think that Lee 100gr will be a good one with some powder coat on it .

    Hey Mike, I really appreciate the video… and I’m hoping you have a follow up soon! I’m exploring this exact path for my 30-06 for grouse and hair during elk season. I am trying to decide between this and the game getter. I do reload but I have no equipment for swaging round balls to size. Which direction would you recommend? Also did you ever get the smallest round balls sub-sonic and if so how many grains of trail boss did you end up with? Thanks!!

    Looks like fun. Where is the point of impact compared to a full power load? Might have a weird hold over if you’re switching out in the field on a big game hunt. Anyways, thanks for sharing 👍

    Awesome range tests Mike! They all shot well especially the 53 gr. They are going to be great small game loads.I’m glad ya got some good results! 😊🔥👏👏👍

    That’s great Mike, what a fun project! The initial results look very good, and I will look forward to seeing how this project progresses.

    Nice work ups Mike!!

    I used ta fancy this idea as well. Actually here in CT its a better choice as we cannot carry a handgun while hunting unless handgun hunting within specific parameters.
    But I mostly gave up on it because I just carry a handgun.

    I understand your similar limitations in Canada.

    Very useful and fun project!!

    Thanks for the ride!!

    Very interesting!

    Nice small game load for the 06, I use the Lee 32 cal. .314" 90 gr. SWC cast from range scrap and powder coated or just plain old Lee Alox whichever you prefer in all my 30 cal. rifles, 06, 300 Sav. and 30-30 sized to .311" and sized to .314" in my 7.62 x 39 and 54r rifles. 3.0 to 3.5 grs of Bullseye keep you just under subsonic velocity. Accuracy is a good as you can hold it at 50 yds.
