I am reloading for a 30-30AI. I am getting good results with 150 grain Sierra bullet, 38.5 grains of BL C(2) powder, and CCI 250 primers. There are no pressure signs or sticky brass. I have not chronographed the load, but I feel like it is in the neighborhood of 2400 ft/sec. My question is for people that reload for 30-30AI. How much BL C(2) powder do you use with a 150 grain bullet?

Taylor -

The only reference I can find for blc(2) in a 3030ai is from handloader 107, but that's for a 170 sra fn: 39.0gr at 2290fps (from win 94) - sounds like your 38.5 behind a 150 might be below max by that author's standards. You might poke William Iorg - he has a goodly collection of reliable 3030ai data.

do shoot straight,
