Re: 30-378 reloading?
I have noticed the pressure loading the 180 E-tip in my 30-338. I don't think a guy will get the velocity out of the 180 E-tip like other 180's, but the bc's are so good it out weighs the slight loss in speed.
With this 30-378 I am looking for that magic bullet that is good for antelope to buffalo, close to far. lol Seriously though, the E-tip seems to be the closest thing I have found so far. The load that I want to load for this rifle I plan on keeping fairly mild. I am looking for accuracy and performance out to the 700 ish range.
So, back to the original question. Does anyone know what powder is used in the factory 30-378 180g ballistic tip Weatherby ammo? I hate to throw it out if it could be used at a later date.
To hunt... or not to hunt...? What a stupid question.
