30 Cal Bullets

30 Cal Bullets for Reloading

America has a love affair with .30 caliber. This largely has to do with our military choosing the bullet diameter to replace the 45-70 Government back in 1892. To this day a .30 caliber bullet still offers a flat trajectory for good accuracy, a high sectional density for better penetration, and manageable recoil.

30 cal bullets for reloading are most often used to make America’s favorite hunting cartridges: 30-30, 30-06, and 308 Win. (These rounds’ bullets are of course .308 in diameter, not literally .30 caliber.) All of these popular rounds benefit from widespread availability of brass, large rifle primers, bullet styles including HPBT and polymer tip, and loading data.

Several other cartridges you could reload with 30 cal bullets include the 30 Carbine, 30-40 Krag, 30 Remington, 30 TC, 300 AAC Blackout/300 Whisper, 300 Lapua Magnum, 300 Savage, 300 Weatherby Magnum, 300 Winchester Magnum, 300 Winchester Short Magnum, and 300 Remington Ultra Magnum. Some 30 caliber cartridges are real oddballs such as the 300 ICL Grizzly and the 300 Rook, so handloading is really the only way to get your hands on them. (Finding brass for very obsolete cartridges is a whole different story.)
