Got up early this morning to load up some 150 grain 30-30s as I have a couple of rifles that I need to sight in. Got to thinking about a bulk box of 500 Remington 150 grains PSPs that I purchased years ago to feed several 30-06 rifles that I no longer have. That was back when I thought I needed a 30-06 to kill a deer. I figured I would use these PSPs to single load the Marlins to do the initial sight in to get on paper, then change over to loads using the Speer 150 grain flat points for final tune-in of my hunting load. I loaded up five rounds of the PSPs using the same charge of IMR 3031 that I use for the Speer FPs. However, after three cups of coffee, I got to wondering if this was a safe practice as I had to seat the PSPs deeper to get them to chamber and eject from the 336. The PSPs mic'ed at 1.016 length whereas the FPs mic'ed at .913. I know some of you have wrote about using pointy bullets to single load a levergun, but how do you adjust for the bullet sitting deeper in the case, which, I figure, would result in higher pressure. Any thoughts on this? Would be no problem to disassemble those five rounds and adjust the charge or forget the whole thing. I would like to use up some of the PSPs for sight-in and plinking instead of the FPs if it makes safe sense to do.
