I am reading up on this bullet and it should work well in a 14" 30-30 Tender. Anyone try these yet?

I developed a load for these in my 14" 30-30 Contender. Very accurate and expand in test medium (gallon jugs filled with water). Haven't taken an animal with them yet, but I have no doubt they would work.





Expansion and accuracy testing was done at 100 yards.

Yes sir, that's exactly what I was interested in knowing. I just got some bullets and have loaded some with 38 gr LVR and a standard primer but, haven't got a chance to test them. I was hoping to get the velocity range you got. I will also load 33.5 gr H4895 because it has worked well with all 150 gr bullets I have loaded. If I can match your results I will be totally happy.

This bullet looks really promising. I bet it's outstanding in AI version.

It is a great bullet for the 30-30 and .300 Blackout.
