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 know it but for pigs I don't won't to play around with them lol I won't them to go down hard and fast

Alright so imr4350 is a good starting powder

IMR4350 is a good all purpose powder for many centerfire calibers. i use it in my 25-06 loads, 270 win. loads, 7mm-08 and 308 loads. i just started using it for 30-30 win. load too here a couple of weeks ago.

H4895 is also an excellent powder with almost identical charge weights and it flows a lot better for smaller cases.
I agree with Silvertip.

I use IMR 4895 for my Garand, '03 Springfield and Savage 110. I use 150 Grain Hornady FMJ for range work. Good powder that covers all 3 guns nicely. I plan on trying some others for the Savage in time but for now it is good enough.

Get yourself an updated loading book that has your specific components in it. It doesn't need to be the latest edition, just as long as it has the info you need. One of the LGS's has a rack with old issues of reloading manuals relatively inexpensively. Maybe you can find one around you. If not that then try Amazon. You can never have too many.

You can also find a lot of reloading data on the Bullet and Powder mfg's websites.It will save you a lot of time by just looking the stuff up.
There are also several reloading forums that you can also get info from.

You probably all ready know this buy I'll say it anyways, I do not take any advice about a reload from anyone online unless it is proven and tested by a reputable source, that is only use load data off the powder and component websites or directly out of your manuals, taking advice on a good powder or bullet to use is one thing, but I never use specific loads guys talk about online without first verifying it in the books, I just find it a good rule of thumb to follow, safety first, you never know who you are dealing with online. I agree with what these guys say, old data us usually still good data, just make sure you find something with your specific components, over time you will probably accumulate a collection of manuals.

I know it I'm trying to get a base line of good powders to look at and I competely agree with you about being safe but I'm new to this and I don't really now many people that reloads so that's y I'm asking question
