How about those 30/30 AI's!!! I use imr3031 but i don't have my reloading notes here at the house. they are with the rifle at my son's house. After trying everything I could test I do load the 30-30ai with 130 grain speer Hot Points. Toughest one of the bunch in the log test. It will break a deer shoulder. good luck, BestLever

I shoot a couple of AIs, but not a .30-30 AI. My method is to use the top load for the standard cartridge as the starting load in the AI and work up. Lee shows a top of 30 grains of Re-7 under a 125 grain bullet. I'd expect to top out at 33 grains and would not go past 34 grains no matter what the pressure signs looked like.

But not all Ackley imp increase case capacity the same. For example the .280 AI increases about 2.7% but the .30-30 increases nearly 11% IIRC
