.30-06 JDJ Reloading Data

Warning! Notes: This cartridge was designed by J.D. Jones at SSK Industries. Application is to Thompson/Center Encore single-shot pistols fitted with a custom SSK barrel. Typical barrel length is 15 inches. Cases are formed from empty Remington 30-06 cases by special means and cannot be fireformed from any other case. Neck length is minimal, which is acceptable for a cartridge used in a single-shot gun. Shoulder angle is 60 degrees, which works fine. Body taper is minimal, similar to Ackley's improved designs. Therefore, this is a maximized version of the 30-06 case. Capacity is a whopping 75 grains of water, which is significantly greater than the 30-06 (about 70). Working pressure is about 60,000 psi, so ballistics are quite impressive. Best handloads in SSK barrels come very close to duplicating 30-06 (rifle) ballistics. (Cartridges of the World 10th Edition)
