I want to reload some cast lead gas checked bullets for both 30-30 and ****yes**** .416 (oohh aahh).

My many reloading manuals, incl. Lyman, don't offer great coverage, esp. for the 416.

Any hints?

I'd take a look at Ken Water's Pet Loads. He's done a lot of work with what a lot of people would call outdated or unusual calibers.

I would ask on the loadyourown.com forum. Those guys are really sharp on that. As far as the 30-06 load, do you plan on using rifle or pistol powder in it?

Not 30-06, 30-30. And, for the 30-30, I've used both rifle powder--mainly IMR3031--and Unique for cast bullet loads.

Haven't fired the Unique loads yet. Interested to see how they do.
