Anybody have a pic of they're own hornady comperator? I don't want to smoosh the shoulder and then fire form to the chamber size plus however short the case was.
The idea is so the brass can be reloaded more times?

I do a fair amount (3-400 rounds a year) of 30-30 reloading and I pretty much only use Hornady LeverEvolution powder topped with their lead free soft tip bullets or Barnes 150 flat nose TSX or IMR 4895. mostly because I have tons of it for my 308. I will say the cases don’t last like more modern brass I assume due to the thin necks and shallow angle of the bottle neck, keep that in mind and get more brass than you think you’ll need.

The LE bullets are more accurate, but the TSX has more reliable expansion in for what I mostly hunt with them (pigs and deer). This is primarily out of either a 1948 Win 1894 or 1952 Marlin 336, so your mileage may vary.

shallow shoulder angles tend to do that.

Question about the hornady Pro Jector press. Are the lock n load plates sold today compatible with the older Pro Jector press?

My favorite is 5.5 grains of Red Dot under a 165 cast bullet (uncoated Missouri Bullet Company is what I normally use). I haven't tried this load with coated bullets, but will soon. Should be subsonic, easy kicking, and cheap.

I enjoy shooting my Winchester 1894 30-30. I shoot slightly reduced loads, with all lead flat nosed bullets. With lead bullets, I keep the muzzle velocity down to around 1700 fps and do not experience any significant lead deposits in the barrel. I mostly plink with my 30-30. I have other cartridges that are better suited for the game I pursue.

Appreciate the infos. Looking at turret presses or progressive, but used.

I'm reloading for plinking right now, am curious about hard cast and the marlin micro groove barrel I have. I know a lower grain load is key.

I build plinking loads for a Micro-Groove Marlin (actually a Remlin) 336 using cast bullets (Lyman #311041) from linotype, Lyman Orange Magic lube, sized to 0.309", gas-checks installed. 173gr flat point at a little over 1900 fps using IMR 3031. No leading that I've seen.

Clearly not a hunting load (even outside of CA).
