    load data 140 gr. Monoflex 30-30?

    Hi!
    Does anyone have load data for the 30-30 Monoflex bullet? Didn't find anything online or in quickload.
    Cheers,

    No, but I wish I did. I just ordered a box but I'm not sure what I will do with them.

    I would use the starting load of the Barnes 150XFN and go up, that way you know you'll be safe. ( Love 336's, but pressure signs sure slip up on you fast!)

    Re: load data 140 gr. Monoflex 30-30?

    I called Hornady and got the following powder recommendations from them:

    I should mention he listed other powders but these are the ones that I had on hand so i wrote it down:

    IMR 4895 28.7gr min-30.1gr max 2100fps-2200fps
    Win 748 30.5gr min- 31.8gr max 2150fps-2250fps
    LeverEv 29.1gr min- 35.1gr max 2000fps-2300fps

    PLEASE!!!! Understand i got this info from a tech on the phone. They are sending me the information via mail with a new catalog. I just wanted to post what i was told. I was a bit disappointed in the FPS but he said this bullet will fly flatter do to its Ballistic Coef. Remember I got this over the phone from the Horady tech so, DONT BLAME ME IF IT IS NOT CORRECT! Once I receive it in writing I will scan an upload. If anyone is interested midway has these bullets on clearance for $27.98/ 50 box. Much cheaper than Hornady's website. I ordered two boxes. I will post a range day results when i shoot and chrony them. Make sure you order manufacture #30310.

    Quickload V.3.6 has the 30-30 Monoflex bullet in the database.

    All the load data I have got from Hornady was always on the low side.Work up like youre
    suppose to and Im sure you can load higher.

    How is everyone going with their reloads using the 140gn monoflex in 30-30? I'm getting a couple of box's in the next few days and wondering how you blokes have found them? I'll be using AR2206H and AR2208 powder and see which one works best in my 336C

    I asked Hornady and got a questionable reply. They sent me a picture of their data for the 160 FTX and said they are recommending using the same data "for now".
    This would go up to 37.0 LVR. I think this was a BS answer.
    I worked my way up to 35.5 and get very good accuracy with no pressure signs. So, that's it for me until I see published data with pressure measurements.

    I know this is an old thread, but how does one go about doing that?
