Im curious to if IMR 4320 can be reduced in large capacity cases safely, I know like H-110 cant be reduced hardly at all, but can IMR 4320 be reduced to such as 50% case capacity safely? this would be in 30/30 winchester and like 30/06.

H-4895 is reccomended for a downloading powder to 60% of the maximum loads.

Also IMR-SR4759 is another good powder for reduced rifle loads.

Look at Trail Boss.

You can safely load in in any centerfire caliber, and it's quite simple to find the correct charge with any caliber / bullet combination.

For reduced velocity loads H-48965/IMR-4895 is acceptable but a better choice depending on your velocity level would be SR-4759, XMP-5744 or Trail Boss.

I haven't tried these loads from Chuckhawks (http://www.chuckhawks.com/reduced_recoil_reloads.htm), but thought you might take a look.

Like said above, H4895 and Trail Boss are the 2 powders to use in reduced rifle loads...
