    Favorite 30/30 loads?

    Used to be a lot of load info at the old Marlin Talk. What are your favorite 30/30 loads?

    I like Reloader-15 and either Remington bulk 170 grain JSP bullets or Sierra 170 JFP bullets. 34.0 grains of Re-15 gives me 2300FPS out of my 336 Cowboy. This load is full power and near max according to the Alliant powder company's data. It is really accurate however, usually 3 shots in 1 to 1 1/4" at 100 yards off a rest with a Williams peep.

    Lee 150 grain FPGC lubed with Lee liquid Alox and sized .310 over 29 grains of IMR 3031. 1,924 fps average, 2.25 inch 5 shot groups and no leading in my 30AS.

    LEE, cast from wheel weights, 170 gr FP with GC. 26 gr of RX 7. Near full power, kills deer cleanly. Taking game with a reload is great, but taking game with a bullet that was once spinning around on a wheel, is a real trip. POWDERMAN.

    RCBS #30-180-FN, weighs 190 gr. I use 28.0 gr. of W-748 for 1950 FPS. Bullet is deadly on deer.

    Don't even try to work up to 34 grains of 3031 under a 170 grain bullet in any lever action. Load I usually put together for deer is 31.5 grains of 3031 under any 150 grain bullet designed for the 30-30. Some time in the last 10 years 3031 has changed and my old loads cause sticky extraction in new guns so I had to back off a bit. This load is 1 grain under sticky extraction in a new Marlin 336.

    Paul B. I use the same combo with 29 gr. load in my cowboy. What alloy do you use? Thanks,

    :shock: My favorite is 30 gr. IMR 3031 under any 170 gr. bullet in almost an .30-30 brass. Inevitably get 2100 fps unless using the old .307" Sierra 170 gr. FP and then get 2200 fps from 20-21" barrels.

    34 gr. is excessive in all but the Remington 788 bolt action.

    **NOT FOR TUBULAR MAGAZINES**
    So far this has been my best accuracy load for my NEF sb2. I could use a bit more velocity, but I'm working on that.
