For thoses that load for the Mod 94 I was asked to work up a load using a FP lead bullet. I chose a 165 grain Missouri Bullet 18 brinell. Using Remington, H335 and Win LRP. Rifle...1949 Win 94. And no leading.

Ended up with 30.0 grains of powder giving me, across my chronograph, 1950 fps +/- 25 fps. At 100 yards it's dead on. At 200+ yards, Vince knows the long range I used, It hit the target with very little extra elevation. Remember Larry's place?

If you shoot or hunt with the Winchester Mod 94 this is worth looking into.

Is it a 30/30 Win?

Sounds right. Did you cast and size and lube the lead bullets, or buy them? I have been amazed with the accuracy of various .30/30 loads. The old classic cartridge just keeps moving on and doing a job. Good information. All the best...

Yep, I remember Larry’s range mate...thoroughly enjoyed the day. I was more than a little disappointed that it started to rain the day we were shooting there.

That sounds like a damn fine load for the old crank handle mate...I just might have to look at it for my ‘94.
