30-30 winchester pills

Good morning, anyone know where I can get some less expensive150gr pills for target shooting thanks. I have been using my nosler projectiles that I would rather use for hunting. Thanks Also these will be used in a lever action

By pills I assume you mean bullets?

You can find plated flat points for $95-100 per thousand.

Sierra and Speer flat points run $20-25 per hundred.

You should be able to find some good cast 150 gr. bullets for a good price. That'll probably be your cheapest option.

+1 on cast. They'll work well at .30-30 velocities and also perform well on small to mid sized game.

Ahhhh, careful with the cast idea, you may want to look at a gas check. Stick with bargain jacketed or plated for target stuff. You could get some nasty leading with a soft cast.

I agree. I am sticking with the plated.

I purchased some excellent bullets for my 30-30 Contender from Beartooth; 160 gr RNFP. They were accurate with most loads and shot comfortably and accurately at lower charges.

I believe too many folks don't understand how to load for lead bullets. The most important factor is bullet to gun fit, lube, alloy (BHN), and then velocity. I have driven some of my home cast bullets in my 357 Mag (160 gr LSWC, WW alloy, C Red lube) to over 1,300 fps, without leading. I have fired a few 160 gr. cast spire point, (plain based, WW alloy, C Red lube [?]) to about 2,000 fps with very little leading in my 308 Ruger. Both of these loads were with bullets that fit the gun (of course I slugged the barrels and sized the bullets appropriately)...

Precisely!
It is easy to drive a 150-160 grainer well over 2000. A softer BH economy projectile will just make a mess of things.

Most of the big reloading supply houses still offer bulk Remington 150gr Round Nose Core-Lokts and Winchester 150 Flat Nose PP for about a quarter apiece.

Missouri Bullet has coated 165 grain bullets for around $0.13 each.

Lead bullets should be fine for a .30-30 *as long as it isn't a Marlin Microgrove barrel*. Nothing wrong with a cast lead bullet for a .30-30, that's all Noah had back when he was pacing the deck of the Ark with one!

Any of the reputable casters will be casting rifle bullets of a suitable hardness of lead and may have alloy options. Gas Checked bullets are a good option but it is very important to make sure the base of a GC bullet is in the neck...

Certainly, thus the note about being careful on which you choose. A jacked up round on H335 or 3031 with a soft cast will turn your barrel into that of a smooth bore shotgun! The Marlin caution is definitely warranted!

I once loaded some gas check bullets for .32-40 ballistics in .30-30.
They shot well enough for a friend to win the rifle caliber side match at the CAS state championship. My 788 is not a good cast bullet rifle, the chamber neck is small and a round with .311" cast bullet won't even chamber. And .309" is not real accurate.

I often shoot 400 gn coated lead with a gas check bullets in my 416 Rigby. I size the bullets at .417 and have no problems pushing them to about 2,300.

Much cheaper than the $1.50-2.00 jacketed versions.

The flip side is that the best lead fouling remover I've found is a gas checked lead bullet or two...that copper cup makes for a heck of a scraper I guess!
