    I concur 101% with Chill Wills -- to put this mix (or ANY powder mixes) in any firearm would be one of the last things I'd ever think of -- unless, of course, on a deserted island somewheres where that's all I might have -- to use in desperation...

    In terms of "loading" I foresee no problems, as long as your loads are as in published manuals/load guides. A friend reduced loads with a powder (I think it was 231) with his reduced load fear of a bullet stuck in barrel replaced with a detonation...

    I have two ancient MouldMasters, and had a similar challenge with one. I had just spent a lot of time eliminating its thermostat -- temp to be regulated by a Variac (before PIDs were invented ;)) -- and the AC cord mica had broken. Sooo, after all...

    My methodology is to use a nifty tool purveyed by Buffalo Arms which extrudes a uniform strip of grease which I apply to Cut-Rite wax paper. I then use the case mouth to make needed "cookies". The left-over is then put back into the tool, so there...

    I have two of these Lyman 311-291, which as you know is a 170 grain, Gas Check mould, using a #465 top punch in the Lyman 450 lub sizer. I have a few firearms in both .30WCF as well as .30 Remington, and this bullet fits and works fairly well in...

    I was in want of a mould for .348 Win a few years back, and landed a quite inexpensive mould on eBay: LYMAN 350447 .348 Win. 200 gr. 1-cavity mould (FNGC) -- #447 top punch. The only down-size is the comparative slowness of the single cavity mould...

    I concur 100% with Texas by God re IMR3031. This is my "go to" powder for most of my "older" firearms, 'specially levers in several different calibers. It works, for me, great in .30WCF, .30 Remington; .32W Spec., .32Remington;.... up to,...

    I like them both, but for accurate shooting -- e.g., MY better scores -- I prefer the canvas. This is for one reason, being I fold it over my left arm for off-hand shooting, with the sling now extremely tight -- which seems to cut wobble immensely!...

    I have rifles chambered in both in .30WCF ("30-30 Winchester") and .30-30 Remington (Remington model 8, and model 14 in this caliber). It is indeed my bullet of choice for the .30 Remingtons, and surely is a reliable, hit where you aim, slug in the...

    For general plinking/shooting in several .380s, a mould which produced working bullets for me is the Lyman 356-632, purportedly dropping 100 gr. RNFP bullets, which I put through the Lyman 450 lub-sizer using plain-Jane Lyman hollow lub sticks, with...
