Need .30 Rem reloading advice

Post by cantgrowup » Thu May 23, 2019 11:13 am

Well... I just picked up my sixth "greatmodel8".... an 81 in .30 Rem made in May 1949. I already reload for .32 Rem, .35 Rem, and .300 Sav, but my initial searching for info on .30 Rem reloading is not very promising. First of all... my Hornady 10th Reloading manual doesn't cover it! :o

I have just purchased a set of RCBS dies (RCBS29201) and #19 shellholder, and some brass from Grafs, along with some Hornady 30c (.308) 150gr RN bullets (Hornady item #3035). Does anyone have .30 Rem reload data for that bullet?

Phyrbird has given you a bunch of options. Remembering that 3 of the (New) chamberings for the 8 - 25,30 and 32 were essentially made to directly compete with existent offerings from Winchester- 25-35,30-30, and 32 win spl reloading our obsolete cartridges doesn`t have to require a lot of searching. Loading data for the venerable 30-30 Win is still posted in nearly every modern reloading manual and the 30 Rem is nearly identical sans a rim. So too with our other two obsolete chamberings. Good Shooting !!

Some reloading manuals state in the cartridge information that the 30-30 data is okay for the .30 Remington.
I bought an older Lyman manual #45 to get some data on the .38 Super and in the back there is a section with data for the .30 & .32 Rem.

6th edition Lyman manual has 30 rem data.
