I liked IMR Green as well for pistol and cast rifle loads as it was $14 a pound. Too bad it's gone too.
Sure is a lot of sludge and turmoil in everyday life now. (Been on hold for hours today trying to get help from Equifax, they finally answered, in French).
30-06 will do for any hunting in the US. My granddad shot prairie dogs using mil surp just after WW2 when he couldn't afford another rifle. Many elk, a bison, and a grizzly too with hunting loads later.
Powder throwers I have aren't consistent. I have heard that the RCBS charge masters are slow with tiny charges of 3 grains or so, tho accurate.

If I prop the gun barrel up in the shade with the bolt open it settles back down in a few minutes.
I doubt if I was hunting I could get the meat cooled off in time...
I have been enjoying shooting my plastic Mossberg 375 with cast bullets. 285 grain with a gas check they are hitting the 100 yard target about the same place as my jacketed load and use half the powder and a $.22 cent bullet. And it doesn't kick much. Would be a good big game load for close...
I have the Mossberg patriot which with scope is 7 lbs and a little change. Great to carry, cheap when reloaded with cast bullets and fun to shoot.
The 235 Speer bullets and 285 cast I use for rough country elk and deer as my beater rifle. Both shoot to near same spot at 100 yards.
