Default .30-30 win non lead reloading

Just finished up a batch. Hornady 140 grain monoflex with lvr 34 grains. Good accuracy but yet to chrono. Time to get the old lever guns out of the cabinet.

I have chrono’d that load in my 24” Marlin 336 and was disappointed in the results as the max load was IIRC correctly just over 100 FPS slower than the manual indicated. The load shot well tho’ so it won’t matter to a buck at normal .30-30 ranges.

I'm not worried about the initial muzzle velocity, the trade off is another possible 50 yards with that bullet over the flat or round nose that sheds speed so fast.

I picked up a 250 piece bag of Federal lead free 150g pull down bullets. My first test load with them and LeverEvolution was very fast and very accurate in both of my Marlins and my Winchester. They'll probably last me the rest of my life.
