When you say "reduced load", do you mean light on bullet, or light on powder with a light bullet?

For plinkers, I've always used 2400, but any slow-burning pistol powder will do. Somewhere around 20 to 25 gtrains.

For light-bullet varmint loads, I've always used 3031, not much over 50 grains. Work up, if going for max.

And this oughta be in the reloading forum...

Yep,straight out of my 1979 Speer reloading manual number 10.Same for 100 grain bullets.Man that would be like shooting a 22 MAG.

If you try this you really need to use a fiber filler to keep the powder in place.

A 110 grain bullet out of a .30-06 will blow Bugs into wee pieces. There are 110 grain commercial FMJ's made for the .30 Carbine, like all 110 grain bullets, that won't blow great big holes in Wiley's hide though.
My old Lyman book has loads for 110 grain jacketed bullets. The latest Lyman book likely does too.

I've done light loads for 22-250 , 270, and 30-30. 17 gr of 4759 doesn't seem to need fillers for what I've done so far. 270 light loads in a remington 700adl laminate stock have been my all time favorite. Love the lines of a 270 cartridge.......simply beautiful.... and something about a remington 700 and shooting it without bothering the shoulder or ears (with ear protection of course). Cryin' shame the rifle belongs to someone else.......just like all the simply beautiful women I know :-)

I you guys don't mind shooting cast bullets in your rifles here is an article you may find useful especially the 100,200 & 600 Yd. loads and there are lots of commercially available cast bullet on the market for this purpose. I'm in th process of getting my stuff together to work up a 165 Gr. cast bullet load for my 300 Savage using about 14 Gr. of 2400 with a muzzle velocity around 1200fps.

No filler required. The SR4759 powder is very bulky and the 19.0 grs I use under a 147 FMJ is about a 75% loading density. Yes, it is just about like shooting a 22 mag. I let the Boy Scouts I train for reloading shoot this load out of my 03 Springfields. They don't get beat to death and they get to shoot a REAL WWII rifle. Both are a hoot!
