Default .30 wcf

I loaded these for my Handi-rifle, 150 gr. PSP, pushed by 34.5 gr. of H4895, going to put them through the chrono. tomorrow, hoping for around 2500 fps.

Nice part about single shots is the reloading. So many more choices. Are you neck sizing or full length sizing? 30/30 specs are for lever actions and on the light side. They have to be safe in older rifles. I dont have my loading books with me but there are hotter loads available.

I used to load for my son,s H&R Topper. Neck size, pointed bullets and no crimp. The newer powders would be interesting to explore.
