    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.

    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.

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