    i did a williams fp sight because the targets weren't cooperating with me
    !!! nuthing to do with my eyes..........nope, it was the targets. i bought a ch4d 35/30 dies and 30/30 starline brass(250pcs). i bought 500 200gr fn gc (rcbs) from bull shop.

    i took the 30/30 cases and necked them up to .358". i used pure lanolin in my necking up. next was the HF wet tumbler with a 4" pvc. after i dried them, i put in a winchester lrp and i loaded up some 16.0 - 20.0gr of 2400/tuft of dacron under a 200gr fn gc. i fired them and 16.5gr - 17.0gr of 2400 had a soot on them, while 17.5 - 20.0gr did not. 20.0gr of 2400/dacon goes 1 3/4 - 2 1/4" at 100 yards(5 shots/benched). 3 shots goes roughly 3/4" at 100 yards but it will go 1/2" at 100 yards if the gods of shooting let me!!! the 35/30 didn't make a difference(target) on unfired or fired 30/30 starline brass.

    i chronoed the load and it is 1726fps avg for the 200gr fn gc and 20.0gr of 2400/dacron. i could take it up an extra grain or two but i am happy with the load. besides, the deer i shoot won't know the difference. in case you are wondering why? my ground blind/stand will only let me see about 50-60 yards. more than that i'll have do a pretty durned good shot thru branches and twigs and brambles to get the deer.

    i'm going to go with the 270ish gr fn gc and about 1500-1600fps when the 200gr run out. oh......by the way, the 35/30 with 200gr fn gc and 2400 "kicks" about as much as a 30/30 with 170gr factory loads, i'm saying that it doesn't "kick".
