I'm a big fan of 3031. I use 27.5 grains with a 170 grain gas checked RNFP. I hunt with that load as well as long range events.

The Lee Loading book has a good chapter about cast bullets in .30-30, .308 and .30-06.

Me too.

3031 and 748 are good 30-30 powders to have around with a lot of overlap into a wide variety rifle  calibers.
