I've always used H4350 and H4831 for my 30/06 loads,so I can't help you with the IMR powders.
Here's a link that list every powder that Hodgdon list for 30/06 loads. Start low and work the charges up.

Have fun & be safe!

I use BLC-2 or W-748 (whichever I can get in bulk) because I can load pretty much everything from .223 to .30-06 with the same powder. They may not be the best powder for any of them, but I do not load for absolute performance (accuracy or velocity) in these calibers. I load for consistancy and reliability and get pretty darn good results in spite of the powders are not "ideal".

I use H-4831SC for magnum rifles and .25-06 and 3031 for .45-70.

I use 54 grains of IMR 4350 and a 165 grain Hornady BTSP. Deadly accurate.

Yes it does matter. Be careful and make sure any powder listed doesn't exceed the max. But according to Hornady and Nosler the one I listed is good for both 165 hornady BTSP and 165 nosler partitions. I just couldn't get noslers to group as good.

Bigdaddy, any of the powders listed may give you acceptable results, but IMR4895 has been the old standby .30-06 powder for many years. The only .30-06 I load now is for my M1 Garands but I also use IMR4895 in .308 with excellent results. H4895 is also an excellent powder with almost identical charge weights and it flows a lot better for smaller cases.
