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."
SOURCE: My 308 winchester semi automatic rifle jams after shooting first bullet. In order to recover, you remove the clip, eject the bullet, replace the clip, **** the rifle and shoot second shot jams
there is a small lip that pulls the shell out of the breach as the bolt moves back
take it in to a firearm repair shop and have it properly fixed

Head to Walmart and buy whatever's cheapest. Just because some other "expert" tells you something there's no reason you should fall for that dreg and there's no reason to pass it on. Your gun will fire *any* common 5.56 ammo. Buy whatever's cheapest and that will run reliably in your gun. You aren't sniping terrorists at 1,000 yards.
