just got my first order from missouri bullet. I've been loading 9mm for a little while thought I would try my hand at loading for my 30-30 model 94.I orderd the#2 whitetaille 135 grain rnfp I'm going to be using sr-4759 powder.Problem is my lyman manual does not list a cast bullet load at that bullet weight.The closest bullet is a 170 grain bullet calling for a starting load of 14.8 grains of powder.Went to imr web site and wasn't much help with that bullet weight.I'm thinking I could reduce the 14.8 load by 10% and use that as a starting point but could really use some advise from someone more experienced

Look in the Lyman #49 manual in the T/C Contender section, page 428.

They list 30-30 loads for a 115 cast bullet & SR-4759.
With lube, that 115 bullet is a 120 or so depending on alloy.

That would be a far better place to start then 170 grain data guessing.

Since Hodgdon markets the IMR powders you can contact them for load information. I've found them to be very helpful though it may take some time to get your answer.

In the Lyman Pistol and Revolver Reloading manual, it lists a 115 gr bullet (Lyman mould #311359) with SR-4759, starting grains 18.0 (vel. 1754), max 20.0 gr (vel. 2027).

Ought to be pretty close for start data.
