Missouri Bullet #2 Whitetail 30-30 bullet

Has anyone used these : #2 Whitetail(309135FP)

They are the 135 gr .30-30 cast bullet from Missouri Bullet Co. I just ordered some and plan on useing them in my Winchester 94 (1980's).

The only manual I have with lead bullet data is the Lyman 49th. Any suggestions from TFL members on starting loads will help.

Thanks.

Some one that has a definitive answer will have a valid response.

I have an old (1986 copy-write) RCBS Cast Bullet Manual.
It jumps from 115 grain to 148 grain bullets, both gas checked. Only one out of 6/8 listed powders is listed for both slugs, Unique. The spread for the 115 grain is 9.0 to 11.0 and 10.0 to 12.0 for the 148 grain.

I think I would look for more appropriate data and not try to extrapolate from the above data. Most all data I can find for 115 grain bullets is for use in the .30 cal Carbine.

I don't see any reason 135 grainers shouldn't work fine.

Load with care,

OSOK
