Friend asked me to reload some 30-30 ammo for him to plink with, so to speak. I used 150 grain Berry plated FN 30-30 bullets and as I remember 8 grains of IMR Trail Boss powder, which probably had velocity of around 1100 fps. Guy said he was surprised by how mild recoil and report was....thought they shot pretty good.
Neat thing about Trail Boss, its not case sensitive, so don't need fillers and you can use jacketed bullets with it too. Matter of fact, IMR/Hodgdon, says with Trail Boss you can fill a case to base of jacketed bullet and not go over any SAAMI pressure limits on a cartridge. I frequently use Trail Boss in my rifles with both cast and jacketed bullets, especially my older centerfire rifles, such as my 7x57 and 43 Spanish Remington Rolling Blocks.
