  • I have a 30 BR, I do not use it for serious competition only for myself.   I have been using H4198, Why? everyone says too.  Have been wondering and reading about reloads for a 30 BR but can not get any info.,only use H4198)  Is there any others,powders) I can use?  Is H322,  RL-7 or Acc 2015 good to use and how do you know if a powder is right?   Thanks for your help.

  • 4198 is by far the most popular & easiest to get,i've tried n130 but it didn't shoot as good as the 4198,in the process of working up a load with tubal 2000 but it's almost impossible to find but i hear it works well,my advise is to keep working with the 4198 but buy it in the 8lb jugs because there's a lot of difference in the lot #'s

  • Bob, what bullet weight are you using?
    What is the twist rate in your barrel?
    All of the powders you mentioned will work..I use H322 with 110-118 grain match bullets...Use a chronograph and try to get your bullet speed to around 2950-2975 fps. Seating depth is best just at jam +- .005".
