30 Carbine reloading

Posted by on November 5, 2016

30-m1-carbine11

After months of procrastination, I’ve finally reassembled everything to load some 30 carbine. This puts 300AAC on hold, because they share a powder funnel on the Dillon 550B, but thats ok.

I went back to my logbook, and realized that last time I loaded this, I used 12 graisn of Accurate #9, behind a Phelps lead bullet. Phelps closed 15 years ago, yikes!

Fast forward to some FMJ 110 bullets, and I need a new powder!

Options:

Accurate – AA #9
Alliant – 2400
Hodgon – H110
Hodgdon – Lil’Gun
IMR – IMR4227
IMR – SR4759
Ramshot – Enforcer
VihtaVuori – Viht N110
Winchester – 296
Winchester – W-680

I really wanted something clean, because I intend to use this in pistols as well as rifles, so my pick for today is…

Hodgdon H110

13.5 grains of Hodgdon in front of some small rifle primers. (some people have concerns and upgrade to small rifle magnum primers, but I’ve not had that problem, yet)

As a starting point.
