I use IMR4350 for my 06. My current favorite is 56grs under a 150gr Hornady SST. I've loaded it from 54 to 58 grs and found 56gr to be perfect for me. I've also used a Nosler Accubond with good success.

Your reloading manual would answer all of your questions. If you don't have a reloading manual, you need to get one or two, or more; then read them.

I know this might sound rude, but a reloading manual is the reloaders most valuable tool.

I'm hunting in MO for deer and hogs and thats y I'm really look at 165gr and maybe 200gr bullets

I'm sorry but 200gr bullets are way too heavy, IMO and not what the 30-06 was designed for. I don't see any reason to go heavier then 165 for the game you're after and I wouldn't be afraid to use any of the 150gr bullets I have here.

I have a couple of reloading manuals from the late 60's. Much of the data is still current.

i use IMR powders for reloading rifle calibers and used the IMR4350 with a Sierra 168gr Matchking bullets. i reloaded for accuracy. i can't remember the actual powder load used as i haven't reloaded that caliber in several months as i don't have a rifle at this time in that caliber. but i remember getting very good results with the IMR4350 powder.
