Hodgen Universal for reduced load in 30-30?


New Member
I just found a pristine pound of Universal in the shop. I have poured a bunch of Accurate 150T bullets and powder coated them. Does anyone have a reduced load for 150 gr. bullets in 30-30?

I’d start somewhere in the 7,5-8 grs ballpark, and work up slowly from there. Universal is an excellent powder for reduced/plinking loads. Good luck!
I really like Universal in short pistol cartridges, but found it very position sensitive in my .38-55. To the point that it would give me a 3/4" 50 yard group one time and then 4" the next.

Hope you fare better.
