Title: Your preferred powder for 30-30
Post by: archer on August 21, 2018, 09:15:42 PM
I just used up the last of my H335 that I was using for 30-30. Anyone have any personal recommendations for a different powder for 30-30?

H-335 is my personal favorite for cast lead loads in the 30-30 but powders like W748,BLC-2, IMR-3031,4064,4350 or IMR or H-4895 will all work well with 150 to 170 gr. jacketed bullets so it would be hard to go wrong with either powder listed.

  IMR 30-31 is my favorite all around powder in 30 - 30 for carbine and handgun loads. Very consistent shot to shot spread in velocity.
