    I do not shoot a 30-30 but I have some old reloading manuals and the Lyman 45th edition lists the following load as the slowest with the low pressure.


    IMR4064 ----31.0 grains----2168fps------27,000CUP


    Recoil is about bullet weight and velocity versus rifle weight, so a slow light bullet is low recoil. However, the manual says the 110 Sierra RN is very inaccurate in their test rifle.

    The worst trouble I ever got into with relaoding was with reduced loads so be careful.

    I'd be a bit concerned about pointed bullets in the tube mag.

    From the Heartland: Pointed Bullets in a Lever Gun???

    Other than that: Dream big and aim real high

    The issue with the 110 RN is still the same as it was 30 years ago when I was using them - no cannelure. A person who reloads for a tubular magazine rifle should know what that means when they see it and what precautions to take.

    Hodgdon has a "Youth" loads section on their website. You might check there. I would think that 4895 or SR-4759 would be choices here.
