    Mauser - for starters: from the looks of the bullet you posted the grease groove bands are not filled out. Means your mold and melt are not up to the proper temperature (say 700 -750). So heat the melt & mold up and stuck lead should melt out with...

    Dean, I have always figured a .30 bore starts at 180 gr., and goes up from there. I think a 200-220 gr. bullet is probably optimum.

    Yes, the Powley powder charges are based on IMR powders - but there are many burn rate and comparison tables to determine comparable powders. Further, manually enter the bullet data for your metrics in inches - then do the IMR powder conversions...
