SOURCE: loading data for leverevolution bullets in a Winchester 94 rifle?

Here are some basic .30-30 specifications of interest to handloaders: bullet diameter .307-.308", maximum COL 2.455", maximum case length 2.039", MAP 38,000 cup.
Medium burning rate rifle powders work best in the .30-30 with bullets in the popular 150-170 grain weight range. Examples of popular powders include IMR 3031, IMR 4895, H335, H4895, RL-15, and W748. For decades I have used IMR 3031 behind the 150 grain Speer or 150 grain Sierra Flat Point bullets and CCI or Winchester primers with excellent results.
The Hodgdon Data Manual No. 26 shows that 31.0 grains of IMR 3031 powder will drive a 150 grain bullet to a MV of 2184 fps, and 33.0 grains of IMR 3031 will drive a 150 grain bullet to a MV of 2364 fps.
The same source shows that 30.0 grains of H4895 powder will give a 170 grain bullet a MV of 1919 fps, and 32.0 grains of H4895 will give the 170 bullet a MV of 2212 fps.
An unusual load with very low recoil that is excellent for plinking and small game or varmint hunting with a .30-30 rifle is a 100 grain bullet in front of 15.0 grains of SR 4759 powder for a MV of 1834 fps, or 18.0 grains of SR 4759 for a MV of 2034 fps. These loads give excellent accuracy in my Winchester Model 94.

Testimonial: "Thanks for the info, but I have that in my reloading books. I'm looking for data on 'leverevolution' .30 cal 160 gr bullets for my model 94. My Lyman 49th edition isn't new enough."

Good afternoon Jay.

I found a couple .58 Cal Lyman Muzzle loaders for sale here:
Muzzleloading Rifles Modern Replica Percussion For Sale that were posted for $600. A H&A .22 rifle here
FALLING BLOCK 22 RIFLE was listing for $250 Wish I could get closer than that, but listings on H&A tend more toward shotguns and pistols, and have prices anywhere from $30 'wall guns' to $500+

Proper loads 4 an Olympia .50 cal. Muzzle loading rifle using pellets instead of powder.

45 Caliber Pellets come in one size: 50 grain
50 Caliber Pellets come in two (2) sizes:
50 grain volume equivalent which equals 50 grains of loose powder by volume.
30 grain volume equivalent which equals 30 grains of loose powder by volume.
The maximum load per shot should never exceed total Pellets containing more than 100 grains volume equivalent. That means, no more than:
45 Caliber 1) Two (2) 50 grain Pellets
2) Three (3) 44/45 caliber 30 grain
50 Caliber 1) Three (3) 30 grain Pellets, or
2) Two (2) 50 grain Pellets, or
3) One (1) 50 grain Pellet and one (1) 30 grain Pellet

54 Caliber Pyrodex Pellets come in one size only:
60 grain volume equivalent which equals 60 grains of loose powder by volume.
The maximum load per shot should never exceed 120 grains (2) Pellets.

How do I remove the breech block on a .50 cal muzzleloader so I can clear a stuck round?

"a round stuck in the barrel"

From that statement I assume you mean you had a bad load, and when fired the ball when only part way down the barrel and got stuck, correct?

If so, rather than unscrewing the "breech plug", you might want to try the less invasive old time method.

You might try a ".50 cal black powder bullet puller":

Attach it to the end of a cleaning rod, and screw the end into the ball.

The brass ring is non-marring in the steel bore.

Once screwed in good, pull it out!

Or, you might try a "CO2 bullet discharger":

Remove the nipple (if a percussion action), and shoot the blast of air through it, pushing out the bullet (have it pointed in a safe direction!)

Rifle manual for 50 powder rifle tradition mod.timber ridge 209

A load for a 50 caliber rifle calls for 90 grains of FFG black powder or 90 grains of Pyrodex RS (maximum, start with a lighter load, and work your way to a good, accurate loading).

I'm not understanding the rest of your question.

What is the best velocity for 155.5 hybrid Berger bullet, using a target rifle, 308 cal. Am powder tuning at this time and would like some pointers. i.e. where to start, what powder grains with 8208 ADI...

It looks like your average velocities with this grain of bullet are anywhere from 2400 to 2900 feet per second. As far as the powder goes in between 39.0 to 43.0 grains is where i would start testing my hand loads.
