    Thanks Bart. I just acquired 3Lbs of LT-30 and Have a fairly new 1:14" ABC Barrel Chambered in 6PPC. I worked up loads with LT-32 and N133 for a 65gr flat base. The 133 shoots a tad more consistent than the LT-32 in this barrel. I am going to give LT-30 a fair try this week (In the Heat) and see how it performs.

    To me, the lt powders seem to be pretty forgiving in the heat but it's hard to beat a well tuned 133 load/rifle. I still have not shot the lt30 in a ppc. I bet you can get it tuned up. You might try blending it with lt32, also.

    I have read posts of guys talking about it. Blending does intrigue me. Before I experiment I'll just try the straight LT-30 first. ;)

    To be clear, most powders should not be blended. LT30 and 32 are exceptions to this. They blend nicely with each other.

    Awesome shooting Bart. Good to see you are still smashing records. That is a very tiny hole. You set the bar very high again.
