Lightest 30-06?
 
What is the lightest grain 30-06 (commercial)that will cycle through a Remington 7400?

The lightest loads for the 06 is a 110grs I believe federal sales them hope that helps you

Ive seen the 110gr before but they are normally a little difficult to find. Id stick with 150gr. There are so many choices in bullet for 150gr you will be able to get what you need.

Remington makes reduce recoil loads if that's the reason u want a lighter load for it

Hard to say what will cycle in the 7400. Bullet weight may no matter as it is gas operated. As long as you have sufficient gas pressure, it should function.

Were you asking about the lightest bullet, or the lightest load of powder that would make the gun cycle?

Lightest bullet in a commercially available round. And, will this round cycle in the 7400? 150 gr. cycles. Something less than 150?

Holy smokes!!! :eek: I didn't think they made 30-06 bullets lighter then 110 gr. I wonder what that 55 gr round would do to a varmint at that speed.

I'm not sure then. The best way to find out may be to just get a few different weights, and see how they work.
