    So this guy I work with, his gramps passed away a few months ago, and his dad was cleaning things out and found it. I did some research, and found out it is the model 14 successor and was made between 1938-1946, it was sold in 30 Remington, 32 Remington and 35 Remington. 30 Rem and 32 Rem ammo has not been manufactured since the late 80's. the 35 Remington is still loaded and used in the Marlin 336.
    So he want's to find reloading dies for this old girl, any and all help appreciated. Thanks in advance !

    I'm currently working on a project to put together a bolt action 30 Remington rifle. I've been considering this for a couple of years now and I have gathered brass, reloading dies, and bullet molds. I bought a Stevens 200 in 308 Win. a few weeks ago to use as the base. The most difficult part now will to be to find someone to chamber a barrel in 30 Remington for the Stevens.

    Reloading dies for 30 Remington are still listed by Redding, RCBS, CH4D and maybe others. My dies are RCBS. Brass is sometimes available on limited runs by Remington. However, with the current panic, who knows when it will be run again. Check places like Gun Broker, it sometimes shows up there. I bought my brass from Reeds. However, the last time I checked they were out.

    If worse comes to worse it should be possible to form brass from 30-30 brass. The rim will need some lathe work and the neck and shoulder will need to be expanded and reset for proper head space and then fire formed. I haven't tried this yet, but it doesn't seem as too difficult a task. I just need to grind a bit for the rim cut and make a larger expander plug for my M die.

    As already mention the 30 Remington is ballisically identical with the 30-30 Win. and uses the same loading data. I'm planning on shooting cast bullets. Lyman 311291.

    Good luck with getting the rifle going again.
