You can't take a VW and win the Indy 500. You are talking highest or above velocity for a 308 Win. The 30-30 Win case is THIN and can't handle high pressures, plus you just don't have enough case to get those kinds of velocity with powders that would be safe pressure wise.

Dittos on RTs comments. You need a 308s performance, you need to buy a 308. Nothing wrong with the 30-30s performance, and you now have the option of using spitzer bullets; but it isn't a 2800 fps cartridge. Don't try to make it something that it isn't.

Well what kind of speed can I get with a 150gr or a 165gr bullets then?

Call it 2300, maybe 2350. I wouldn't try to go much beyond that with standard 30-30 cases. 375 Win cases are rated for higher pressures if you want to do some case forming, but I don't think it'd be worth the effort or the expense.

Depending on what you're doing with it, it might be worthwhile to consider some of the lighter 125-135 grain .30 cal varmint bullets. At these speeds, they'll behave more like conventional big game bullets, expanding rather than blowing up like they would at higher velocities.

Re: Any body have any loads for a 30-30 single shot

If you want to hunt deer size game look no further than the Nosler 125 gr ballistic tip. You can expect to get 2500 fps reasonably. I have killed many deer with this bullet. I shoot it in three different 30 cal. weapons from from 2670 fps to 3000 fps muzzle velocity and it just hammers deer.
It is THE BULLET for my 30-30AI Contender pistol 14" barrel which I get 2670 fps average with it for deer.
If you want to use a 150 gr spitzer bullet I would suggest that you go with the Nosler ballistic tip and keep your shots to 200 yards max for good expansion.
