Varget for 30-30


Registered Users do not see the above ad.


Would Varget be a good powder for a 30-30? My seirra manual shows that I can get 2150 fps with a 170 gr bullet using varget. I just dont know that much about burn rates and all that. Varget seems like a good all around powder for me cuz my book lists it for my 22-250 and the 30-30 as well.

I bought some H380 a while back for the 22-250 and I found some data in a buddys loading manual for it in the 30-30. I used it with some speer 170 gr flat nose bullets and it worked well. But now I cant find out which manual I got the data from.

Varget is an excellent powder for the 30-30, especially with the 170gr bullets.

If you can't find tested data for Varget, you can use data for 4064 with perfect confidence. The two are very, VERY close.
