Im looking for some load data for a 30-30 using Unique powder and 180gr. RNGC & FNGC boolits. I had some old data but cant find it and wanted to load some up this week for some plinking. Thanks.

With the GB 311291's I have had excellent acuracy with 10 grs. Unique. Standard Fed pistol primers. Around 1/2" for 5 at 50 yds.

I've had good luck with 10.0gr Unique pushing an RCBS 30-180-FN's.

My brother's favorite 30-30 plinker is the Lyman 311008 plainbase boolet, sized .310, loaded with 8.5 gr. Unique. this boolet was originally intended for use in 32-20, but sized bigger for that application. Don't know the velocity, and haven't tried it in my own rifle. In a 94 carbine there are no pressure signs, leading, or recoil, and it seems to shoot minute-of clay-pigeon fragment all day long.
