I would suggest as mentioned pick a bullet with a canelure.

The Sierra 125 gr isn't a bad choice, close to your desired weight without too much of an increase.

Here is QL for it. Keep in mind try to choose a powder that has close to 100% burn rate.

HTML Code:
Cartridge          : .30-30 Win. (SAAMI)
Bullet             : .308, 125, Sierra HPFN 30-30 2020
Cartridge O.A.L. L6: 2.550 inch or 64.77 mm
Barrel Length      : 22.0 inch or 558.8 mm
Predicted Data for Indicated Charges of the Following Powders.
Matching Maximum Pressure: 42000 psi, or 289 MPa
or a maximum loading ratio or filling of 100 %
These calculations refer to your specified settings in QuickLOAD 'Cartridge Dimensions' window.
C A U T I O N : any load listed can result in a powder charge that falls below minimum suggested
loads or exceeds maximum suggested loads as presented in current handloading manuals. Understand
that all of the listed powders can be unsuitable for the given combination of cartridge, bullet
and gun. Actual load order can vary, depending upon lot-to-lot powder and component variations.
USE ONLY FOR COMPARISON !
86 loads produced a Loading Ratio below user-defined minimum of 90%. These powders have been skipped.

I my opinion, the 30/30 is 'the' easiest cartridge to load for. I've found that it isn't fussy about bullets or powder.

IMR4064 powder and I use the cheapest 170gr FP bullets I can find.

Reduced loads

Have you thought about trying the Remington Reduced Load ammo for this? I bought a couple boxes when my son first started shooting and they are pretty light recoil, good for beginning shooters. I forget what grain bullet they load in them, but they are available at many shops.
