    Lt-30 in 30x47

    Just checking to see if anybody has tried lt-30 in 30x47 with 112-118gr bullets?

    lt30
    only in a 30br , not in a longer case...
    but my oal is 2.38 with a 115...a bit longer than your average 30br.
    still a bit short of your 47.
    i think it is bad news as it produces velocity at a full case....a bigger case might be a bigger air space or too much
    powder when full

    In the 6ppc I have not found LT30 to be as sensitive to case fullness as one might expect.

    I've tried couple powders like h322,133 with excellent accuracy going to the 133 40ish grs (bibs 112's). I have plenty of lt-32 and would like to try some, but just don't know where to start. If you guys have any info on lt-32 in 30x47, please share.

    Both 133&135 work very well in 30X47, until I rechambered to 30BR, I used 39gr of V-133 with a Fowler 135 gr bullet with excellent results! Kreiger 15 twist Barrel. I also tried V-135 and the two powders were close in grouping, hower I chose V-133 because I had quite a bit of it. I would think Lt-30 would be worth trying! I am now using 8208XBR in the 30BR 15 twist and absolutely no signs of pressure using 125 gr bullets.
