    load data Hornady 140 gr Monoflex for 30-30

    Seems like folks are looking for some load data for the 140 gr. monoflex for 30-30. Here is what Hornady sent me.
    Hope this helps.

    For my current saga with this bullet, check out the thread started yesterday.. 140 gr Monoflex problems in 336 - update

    I'm puzzled. This table shows H4895 topping out at 2100fps with 30.1gr. Over at another discussion I found*, a Shooting Times article is cited as the source for the statement, "Allegedly, 140 gr. jacketed load data will work for this bullet." Yet my Lee Modern Reloading manual gives the H4895 loads for a slightly heavier 150 gr jacketed bullet as 30.5gr / 2138fps start load, and 34.0gr / 2390fps max. The jacketed start load is pretty close to the max in this table. The jacketed max is faster than the LeveRevolution powder max from the table. Evidently, the "allegedly" remark isn't right. Is this bullet so much harder than jacketed lead that it has to run slower?

    I see that Hornady's web site shows their factory load to achieve 2465fps, well over the max the table gives for LeveRevolution powder.

    They use more copper in the bullet.It is not as slippery as the jacket material and pressures go up accordingly .That is why Barnes went to a bullet with groves in it.Less metal touching the rifling brings down the pressures.

    Just fyi... I'm getting 2454 average velocity out of a 24" barrel XLR with 35.1gr. 2426fps with 34.1gr. Not crazy about seating down past the neck but it is what it is. I'm just as happy with the 16gr so will likely stick with them. Moving over to cast one rifle at a time anyway so may be mute for me once I get a mold I'm happy with.
