Good morning to all,
Has anyone out there loaded any 30-30 cartridges with Win 748 Powder? I was loading up some ammo, for my Star rolling block carbine in 30-30, using mostly cast lead along with a few jacketed rounds. I decided to try WW 748 powder, mainly because I have 16 pounds of it. Also, years ago, I loaded some .308 rounds with 748 and they turned out to be the most accurate cartridges that I ever fired in that particular rifle, which was a Win. model 88 carbine. The cast bullets are a 176- gr. gas checked and powder coated round nose and a 180 -grain gas checked flat nose that is also powder coated. The jacketed bullets are 170 grain Sierra #2110 30-30 bullets. I have ever powder that you could use for this cartridge but wanted to try it after the success with the .308 rounds. I loaded them yesterday and hope to try them out in a couple of days.
Is there anyone who has used this powder in a 30-30?
