Question about Thomson Thompson Center Omega Z5 Rifle - Blue/Black

Open Question

I have a Tc omega and have shot 100grains of 777 powder. I have tried the power belts bullets 223 grains and the shock wave 250 grain. I can not get a good group at 100 yards. I can only group about 6 inches. I am cleaning the gun good after every shot. I am runing a gress patch and dry patch and occasionally a wire brush. How can a do better.

SOURCE: Does the TC Omega have

Hello jps.... No problem at all with 150 grains. In fact, that is the spec. max. amount. The Thompson Center Omega Z5 was designed with simplicity in mind. It is easy to shoot and easy to clean. The breech seals the 209 primer from rain and snow and is easy to open with a simple forward motion of the lever on the trigger guard. The sealed breech plug design also prevents the crushing of Pyrodex pellets. The Z5 can handle a powder load of up to 150 grains for more power or longer range shooting.

  • Exposed hammer

  • Rubber recoil pad
  • Fiber optic sights
  • Blue chrome-moly steel with a silver weatherguard finish

    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.

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


    MAXIMUM LOAD WARNING 45 and 50 CALIBER RIFLE:
    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 RIFLE:
    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.

    Winchester powder load data


    Going by the Lee reloading manual, IMR 7828 is not an option for a 150 grain bullet. That powder does not come up in the load data until using a 195 grain bullet. Most powder manufacturers have extensive load data on their website. I would recommend looking there.

    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.
