I am working on a 30-06 load up (target only) for a L61R. We had problems with the famiy 270 and cleaning as well as long loads made that work out to the expected 1 inch MOA groups (a tad under actually. I had read that the L61R (maybe all Sako?) had long distance to the lands. Both the early 270 and the 30-06 do. Does anyone know the reason for that? Recently with ELD bullets I know some mfgs in some calibers are doing that, but Sako back in 1962 (earlier?) did it and no such thing. I do work a lot with COAL, I load long and have an RCBS I take to the range so I can move them back until I find a good spot. The 30-06 (so far) liked it further off, the 270 liked them in close.
