Hunters Supply makes these for the .30-30. So I was wondering if any here has used them or developed any load data for them?

Most of the Data I have found on line show the 170 gr. as max for the 30-30. However I did find this. Keep in mind I have NEVER tried this and cannot speak to it's accuracy.

It is a interesting weight for a .30-30. If I can push it out the barrel at 1950fps with a gas check this would make a very hard hitting round at 100 yards or less. It would be enough to stop a large black or even a small brown bear with out issue.
I am just surprised I couldn't find any load data for it .

You should probably double check that the twist rate of your barrel grooves is such that it can stabilize a bullet of that weight, it might be too heavy.
