Morning gents, doing a quick safety check of my work. Loaded up for the .30 Carbine for the first time using 13.5gr H110 under a dillon cast 115gr with a COAL of 1.677. Reason for the quick check is this is going into the old carbine and wanted all my data before hitting the range. This load came off of load data but I cut .5gr off. Thanks a bunch in advance as always.

Did the list a min/max load with associated pressure? SAAMi has max pressure at 40,000 psi I believe. I don't have to bullet to check in QL. If I were you I would start lower and load work my way up...

Hey Jim, thanks for the numbers. After seeing them, I'm sure glad I didn't bump this up to 14 or more grains of H110. Lead seems to be kind of an oddity in these guns when putting 110 behind them.

The GI load with H110 Jacketed has a max of 14.9gr and a few of the cast 110gr have 13-14 of the same. The bigger issue seems to be the issues in underloading h110 which I have taken a head first dive into today. The bullet is a commercial cast 115gr .308 offered by dillon which I wouldn't be suprised if it were discontinued.

If you have access to check pressure for the cast 115gr above using 13.5gr of H110, that would be really my only out before scraping the few rounds I have built thus far.

I don't have a way to check pressures for your combo .

probably the safest would be to change powders to one you have info on .
