    Emailed Vista/ATK/Alliant/Federal/Speer about a month ago and they were indignant that I would suggest they publish data for it. "Takes time". Right. They developed this cartridge over a year ago.

    Yet, a guy in a cowboy hat developed a few loads in his backyard:


    But Hodgdon just delivered, in time for Thanksgiving


    Looks like I finally have a use for that Longshot I bought a year ago...

    Holy cow Hodgdon has a lot of data. I sure would like to see a pistol that holds 20 rounds in .30SC.

    Maybe KelTec will make one with a large mag. GF

    Id missed that Hodgdons had posted .30SC data.

    What little Id done with #5,#7, #2400, and LongShot, the surprise comes with LongShot!

    All the data that SOSS posted was similar to mine and what Hodgdons posted.
    However, the max charge of Hodgdons with LongShot is about a grain and a half above what I called max.

    Ill have to retry with some CCI SPP, and SRP.
    I was getting primer cratering and heavy swiping of primers above 5.7 so called 5.4-5.5 as tops. Somewhat lower velocities from my 3.6 barrel too.

    Well see...

    Loaded 6.0 gr Longshot with Sierra 90 JHC and Hornady 100 XTP, OAL 1.090". Had CCI 400 SR primers on hand and used those. Will test and report back.

    Used Lee dies on a Dillon RL550. L .32 SWL shellplate does not work. A .32 ACP shellplate has poor fit, doesn't hold case during priming. The recommended .22 Hornet shellplate is just not quite right. The extractor groove on the .30 SC is tapered and the square edge on the top of shellplate damages it. Had to modify the shellplate by beveling the top edge.

    The Lee round nose bullet seater smashed the exposed lead nose of the Sierra 90 JHC into a helmet shaped oddball. Trimming was not ideal and doubt I will be using those again.
