I have done some work with lead bullets in the 30-30, WIth a 170 gr bullet, try 6-8 gr of Red Dot, 7-9 gr of Unique, 9-11 gr of Blue dot, or 14-16 gr of H4227. With a 16" barrel, you can expect velocities of 1100-1400 fps and 3-4 MOA, any faster and you will have a ton of lead to clean out of the barrel and terrible accuracy.
