Morning all,

Has anyone been using Reloder 15 in their 30-30 with 150gn projectiles ?

Have used H4895, groups open up past 3" if I go over 32gns or so.

Would like a few more fps without throwing away the accuracy.

Thanks

Mark

Try Varget or BL-(C)2. 748 will also take you there easily. Have heard good things about Rel. 15 in this case, I have no experience. What you describe is common with the 30-30. My speed load for 170gr. BL-(C)2 is 1.5gr. higher than the accuracy load.

Thanks Dr A,

Your comments are appreciated.

I have been using PMC factory, 150gn, on big feral billy goats. No complaints.

Would like to get 2350fps with my reloads without sacrificing accuracy. 2.5" or less, for five shots at 100 yds is my objective.

When shooting groups, I put three shots down range then wait ten minutes and shoot two more. That seem to simulate the game field down here, Australia.

Thanks

Mark
