My Win 94 has a 1 in 12 twist and I stabilize 180gr SP, (loaded singly,) with it.
With a 1 in 10 twist, I doubt you'll find a bullet made for a tube magazine that it can't stabilize.

A Calculator for Barrel Twist Rate

And the "whats the least" would probably be a soft lead bullet without a jacket. Over-stabilization is when your bullets fly apart due to centrifugal force.
...nuff said.

Stupid calculators - years ago a buddies t/c contender shot 180gr for piggy's better than just good ,and they were round nose speer bullets. I tried a few loaded for my 308 my then new 788 remmy and it to shot them as well as 150 grain sp. It to has a 1-10 twist barrel just like the t/c 30-30. It might be hard to find a factory load for the 30-30 in 180gr. Not sure I have seen any. Like covered, might not feed in a marlin.
