I found what books have the .30-40 data im looking for but I dont have 'em, would someone be so kind and look it up for me?
Lyman Reloading Manual 49th Edition has listings for a 150 gr. Sierra Jacketed SBT and a 180 gr. Speer Jacketed SP. The Hornady Handbook of Cartridge Reloading 7th & 8th Editions have a 220 gr. Hornady RN with fps ranging from 1,600 to 1,900. All using RL-15.
Now that I know I can use Rl-15 in my levers.. What powder would be good for me to get next? The next calibers would be the 7.7x58 and 7.62x54. They should use a similar powder, shouldnt they? Everybody seems to have the ones they prefer, Ive been told unique, trail boss, 2400, 4895, etc.. Some of those are pistol powders arnt they???
One of you guys need to do a "What powder is right for me" sticky.........
