Isn't This Cute!

Post by Mistered » Wed Jan 08, 2020 6:33 pm

The shortest .30 cal bullet I have ever loaded in .30-30 !

93 Grain JSP pulled from some old .30 Luger ammo I had!

About the only shorter bullet might be .310 round balls. I have read about them being loaded in .30-30 with like 3.5 grains of Bullseye for total, no report yard plinking/varmint use.

Looks a bit like a Saturn 5 rocket...

Pine cone plinkers
Yep - they will send more flying!

I'll put a few on paper to see what they do. Like I mentioned I hope they are not some tackdriver load because if so I will have to do some research to find the bullets if I want to continue loading them.

.30 Luger ammo is still being sold so someone is making the bullets. Hornady has XTPs in 90 grain and I found a Mfg. of lead bullets who has 93 grain.

I'll probably check with a Mfg. of .30 Luger ammo and see where they are getting their 93 grain JSP.

For a range report?

If so that is going to be a while as the big snow decided to hit over the weekend and I have been dealing with it....
