Re: 30-378 help

Doing a Google search for "30-378 load data" gave the following web site:

30-378 Weatherby Magnum Custom Load Information

It's got a couple of links to load information you can use.

Re: 30-378 help

I will assume long range and a bullet over 200 gr.

So, here are my favorites to date.

a Fed 215 M primer and 98 gr of H-1000 , under a 210 Berger hunting VLD.

a Fed 215 M primer and 94.5 gr of H1000 , under a 230 erger OTM hybrid

Both are seated to 3.800" total length.

AS ALWAYS WORK UP TO THESE CHARGES.

Jeff

You are welcome sir. Please just start a few grains below and work up. These are all safe loads in the rifles they were worked up for, but as discussed on here lately the variance between lots of powder and all rifles being different it is not worth it to go right to "The Load"

Glad to help

Jeff
