Reloading powder....

Just getting into reloading.. Want to start by reloading 300 win mag, 3030, 3006, and 280. Is there a good powder that I can use for all of those rounds? I wasn't really wanting to get a ton of different powders if its not necessary. I'm not reloading to get tack driving accuracy, mostly to get quality bullets at a cheap price.

Re: Reloading powder....

IMR 4350 should cover all but the 30-30.

IMR 4895 can be loaded in everything but the 300 Mag.

In all likelihood you should probably plan on buying a few different powders as each caliber may likely shoot better with one or another.

What bonzy said. I did the same and ended up finding better groups with powders in the range i needed for the cartridge

Good load for the 30-30 using IMR 4350 in the Nosler book I believe.

Re: Reloading powder....

JMO,if your just startin better brush up on powders and why. Very hard for a do all and your range of cal.s is to wide. Some you've mentioned use old stand by powders. Not to much good comes from cheap, todays factory loads have come a long way with quality bullets. Reloadin is for shooters more so, and all that comes with it. IMO re/think your goals and for sure undrestand burnin qualities of powders and the preasures they can build, good luck....later

Re: Reloading powder....

You could probably make it with 3031 for the 30-30 and 4350 in the others. I would recommend getting a good manual and doing some research. Also you can log on to Hogdgon's website as they list multiple loads for each caliber. Hope my spelling is correct lol.

Re: Reloading powder....

Thanks guys.... I may skip reloading the 3030 for now. Shells are cheap and I don't use it too much. I'll get a manual and probably some of the 4350 and go from there!

Re: Reloading powder....

Deuce280, Get a good reloading manual and read it. I like the SPEER bullet manual. BUT Any of the bullet makers have good manuals. As does HOGDON POWDER. You can also call the sierra bullet tech line, you can get that number on their website. 4350 and 4831 should work well in all the cartridges you listed but the 30-30.
One other piece of advise for you, DO NOT ASK FOR OR USE RELOADING DATA ON THIS OR ANY OTHER FORUM TYPE WEBSITE.
No offense to anyone that answer this post. They all gave solid advise. But some of the things I read on this forum SCARE me! A quote from my late Uncle will sum it up, "The deer won't know if you used 42 or 44grains of powder"
good luck
