Default RE: How much black powder in a 30/30 load?

Well with 22gr light loads with FF bp the 30/30 was pretty accurate at 35 yards. With 20gr of 4831 it shot great out to 50 yards. I am pretty impressed with my first attempts at making my own cast bullets. I dont have much tin in the lead yet, just a couple of wheel weights in 5 or 6 pounds of lead is all. lol, with only 18 gr of 4831 the 30/30 is a pretty fun plinking rifle. It kicks very little and is still pretty accurate to 35 and 50 yards.
