|The metric equivalent of 30-30 is 7.62x51mm and you're using a x39mm sizing die? Anyway cases should be 2.039 and C.O.L. should be no longer than 2.550 (as Vinnie said). I shoot one, but not with cast bullets. The Lyman book states that a harder alloy like linotype would be best. |
|I used AR2206, AR2207 in my 10" BBL TC Contender 30.30 using 150gn cast bullets, with AR2207 giving the best accuracy and results.|
I use AR2208 (Varget) in my 30.30 Mod 94 lever gun. I would think that AR2205 is too fast for the 30.30 although it is a brilliant magnum pistol powder.
Elvis...as a start point I would measure the length of your loaded bullet. If it is longer than 2.550 inches then you have probably found the reason for the rifling printing on the bullet. I know it sounds like a silly question, but are you seating the bullet to the crimping cannellure and not a lube groove?
|MacD, are you sure that load with H4895 is for a lead bullet? I would expect it more for a jacketed bullet...|
