Hi All,
I am new to this reloading thing.
Wondering if anyone has worked up a load for these combinations: -
30-30 WIN, 150gr Remington CoreLokIt, ADI AR2206H powder (i.e. H4895) for Marlin 336C 20" barrel

and

30-30 WIN, 160gr Hornady FTX, ADI AR2206H powder (i.e. H4895) for Marlin 336C 20" barrel.:)

howdy, philguru. if you asked if any handloaders use imr4895 you would get pages of replies, since in the states ADI ar2206h is labeled h4895 or imr 4895. years ago i loaded up some 150 grain loads for a marlin336 in 30-30, with imr4895. i don't want to say how much of the powder i used, it was more than recommended. 4985 works like a charm in 30-30.

Hi Birdshot,
Thank you for your reply.

Could you let me know what recommended loads you tried and how they went?
How much lower should I go for a 160gr projectile?

Philguru,

Since nobody else has done so, yet, let me say: Welcome to ShootersForum!

As one of our founding members often told new guys, "Rules are simple, be nice and join in."

From the Hornady website:

http://www.hornady.com/assets/files/ftx_load_data/30-30_win_ftx.pdf

NOTE: H4895 and IMR4895 are not the same powder and should not be used interchangeably. This is reflected in the load notes from Hornady.

Between these two bullets, I would definitely go with the FTX. They may not give you a lot more range or energy, but since you're handloading them anyway, I think it's worth the extra cost for the plastic-tipped wonders. :)

philguru, when i loaded imr 4895 in 30-30, i was in a different mindset and trying to hotrod the round. i worked up several grains over the max recommended load. i have since specialized my rifles, and no longer load to the highest pressures. that being said i do load 30-30 to the max recommended load of h322, (not sure what ADI designator is) 29.4 grains with 170 grain FN bullet. i got this load from the Sierra manual.

There's a gent on another forum that recommended "about" 30.2 to 30.5gr of IMR-4895 with the Rem 150 CoreLokt. Many others on that forum tried it and also reported excellent accuracy in their Marlin 336 rifles. In my loads H-4895 is just a fuzz faster burning than IMR-4895 so I would start at 30gr. These loads are well below max for a 150gr bullet.

Do you guys down under measure powder in "grains" or "grams"?

Hi Hardball,
We use S.I. units in Australia. So we convert grains to grams most of the time.
You guys should be on baord and snap up those Euro's etc - joking !
