Any favorite powder and bullet combos for 30-30?
Avoid pointed bullets in tube fed guns.
Can't be much more help to you. I don't reload.
The LEE 150 gr. .309 Flat Point GC mold makes a great bullet. I pour these from Linotype and lube with SPG. The long neck on the 30 WCF case allows cast bullets to run at jacketed speeds. These are very accurate and cheap to shoot.
I use trail boss with a 168 gr. lead bullet.
My hunting load is the 170 Hornady flat point and a maqx charge of IMR 4064.
Plinking load is a Lyman 168 gr gas check cast from WW, over H322.
Ive been reloading for about a year now and 30-30 is my fun gun to mess with. My 2 most fav loads are win 748 on 34.6 gr. With the hornady 150gr rn. And crf223 on 33.7 gr. With the hornady 150gr. Rn. Both shoot around 2000fps and hold a real nice clover at 75yds. With irons.
Big Game load 30.0 grs. H-335 and the Lee 170 gr. RNFP cast for WW alloy and gas checked. Plinker and small game loads same Lee bullet gas check left off,two light coats of Lee Alox pushed with 7.0 grs. Alliant Red Dot and the Lee 90 32 cal. SWC sized to .311 cast from pure lead two light coat of Lee Alox and 3.0 grs. of Alliant Bullseye.
Thank yall for the info. Anyone use H4895 for 30-30?
Used it in the past. works very well.
