My brother in law just bought the savage axis 30-06
the barrel is a 1-10 twist..we are having problems finding a bullet that groups well....I dont have 06 reloading dies yet for this gun, off hand can anyone recommend what grain bullet would shoot best out of this gun, It has a 22 in barrel... we have shot from 150gr to 180 gr. i realise the weapon isnt broken in yet.. but tomorrow is the last day we can go to the range before heading to Montana. thanks Brian

Get a bore solvent and make sure to get any/all copper out of the bore. There is no reason the gun should not group well. Try to find a 165-168 gr. Nosler partition or try the Barnes vortx load. Partition is a good bullet.
