    Someone asked how to bell a 30-30 casing.

    I have loaded for 30-30 for many years. It was the first caliber I loaded for. I have not used lead bullets. Might be fun for some plinking ammo, however to get the most out of your 30-30 you need to use something like Hornady 150 Gr. Round Nose jacketed bullet and 31 gr of IMR 3031. Now you have a deerslayer round.

    I have found that a quick way to expand the mouth of the case for easy seating of cast bullets is to use a small needle-nose pliers. It takes a bit of practice to get it right consistently but it only take a second or two and it works great as long as you give it a crimp when you're done.
