    l read that a different powder would reduce muzzle blast when shooting .30 Carbine rifle rounds through a Blackhawk. My reloading manual doesn't have pistol load data. Any suggestions will be appreciated.

    I noticed in 357 mag that h110 has less flash than 2400 in my 4” gp100. There’s a lot of load data for h110 in 30 carbine, I’ve used it and it works really well but mine is out of a rifle. Have you tried it?

    l have only shot factory 30 Carbine rifle ammo. l have worn out two 30 Blackhawks. l found a new old stock a couple of years ago. l want to load a hundred rounds and see if it is worth the effort. l haven't tried H110 yet.

    A full dosage of h110 feels much more stout than factory loaded ammo. I thought 30 carbine didn’t recoil until I hand loaded for it lol

    Gather some small rifle primers, a can of H110, and some of those Speer 90 grain bullets that they make for the 7.62 Tokarev. They're .309 but that's okay. Start low and work up.

    I've had good luck with 121 hard cast for less than full power loads as well.
