Speer 150 and 170 30 cal flat points

#1 Post by Muddly » Fri Sep 14, 2018 4:17 pm

Never had luck with Speer bullets. Just never got the accuracy I got with Sierras and Hornadys.
Well, my M99 .30-30 loves them. Very accurate and consistent, so I think I might give them a try for deer and bear. The 150s for deer and the 170s for bear.
Anybody use them? Curious how they compare to other .30-30 specific bullets. The 150s are doing 2400 fps and the 170s 2280 fps.
Thanks

Muddly,

I have been using the Speer 150 gr bullets in my 30-30s for decades. I use them in my Win 94s with good accuracy from every one I've shot this bullet out of.
Usually I load them over 34.5grs of Win 748. That has been the most consist ant powder I've ever used in the 30-30s.
Unfortunately I've never taken a game animal with them, so I can't comment on that end of it.

Speer150's out of my .30-30AI Model 99 are amazingly accurate. Only used it on deer once but that one dropped in its' tracks.
