Default Steyr 30-'06 Mod M testing

My trigger guard finally delivered after 4 months. The techie said the new plastic trigger guards had been upgraded with steel screw inserts and a new plastic formula....we'll see. Any way I started with 165 grain then 180 grain Accubonds using Varget starter loads and it shot poorly. I called PS and he recommended going hotter to find the correct barrel timing. It worked. This morning I switched to RL22 and found an interesting load on the Nosler site. 61 Grains of RL22 was the best group and fastest speed....you don't see that often! It didn't like the 165's but the 180's hit a homerun. Easily sub MOA at 2766'/sec.
#1=165 gr accubond w 50.5 gr Varget @ 2740
#2= 180 " " w 50 " " @ 2704
#3= 165 gr " w 62 gr RL22 @ 2838
#4= 180 # " w 61 gr " @ 2766

Talk to yourself. There are times you need expert advice.
