What bullet does Federal use in it's 170 grain 30-30 offering? My gun likes it! ;D

I want to load my own though.

Jeff, it's impossible to know although they're supposed to be Federal. The large ammo companies may make certain bullets and sub-contract certain bullet production out to other companies, like Hornady and Prvi. Hornady makes piles of bullets for other companies and is the largest bullet maker in the world. Prvi (in Serbia) also make tons of bullets for others. Sorry. It's impossible to know the answer to your question.

oh well, I kinda figured it was proprietary. I guess I'll just focus my reloading efforts on 170 grainers. Thinking about going to all cast too.

Cast lead. Now you're talking. Some cast lead boolits will make that .30-30 sing opera!
