Hi there,

I am looking to get into reloading for my 336 in 30-30. I have fairly extensively researched the options and am happy with the Lee gear I am planning to run with. I am not imagining high volumes of ammo produced, and will be mainly used for hunting deer.

I do however want an accurate load, with good killing power within 100m, preferably minimising meat damage also.

My question relates to powder options as locally I am limited to Winchester and ADI. The 748 seems fairly popular, not so sure about ADI powders.

What would be a good general purpose powder that gives me options with bullet weights from these two manufacturers?

Thanks,

Matt

I use 748 and varget in that order.

Sierra 150,170 FN
Horady 170 FN
Nosler Partition 170 FN

My favorite load is the 748 with Nosler 170FN and 748 with Sierra 150FN... those are the most accurate in my 30-30 336. If you want specific information please feel free to PM me earplay.
