Milspec load is usually considered to be 15.0gr of H110. Most people that I'm aware of load 14.0-14.5gr however.

I load 14.5 H110 onlt because for what ever reason my powder drop will not drop 15 consistently ? Cant figure it out.

I also have this problem with Varget It will drop 46 grains for 3 pulls then will be as much as .5 grains off on the 4th pull and basically does this pattern through out try to charge.
Now if I dial it back to 45.5 it drops 45.5 with a +/- .01 ish ????

I run between 14gr and 15gr of H110 depending on which carbine I'm shooting. I have one bastard carbine that wants it own way with IMR4227, so I feed it what it likes to eat.

I load for a bunch of different cartridges. The one I really dislike loading is .30 M1 Carbine! Good thing they are a riot to shoot!

Lucked out in 2007 and bought about 8k GI pulls from Bartlett's before everything went nuts in 2008. Just wish I would have stocked up on projectiles at the old prices for my Garands.

Back in thge 1990s when the CMP when they weren't so worried about law suiits, on thgwmeir website under the armor's corner there was a video posted about reloading the 30 carbine. The author suggested 15.0 gn of W296 gn and either Winchester small rifle primers or small rifle magnum primers this duplicates the charge used by Wichester during WWII.
I realize this might start some interest replies, but W296 and H110 except for the packaging are the same powder. They are made at the same plant with the formula. Only the packaging is different. I use magnum primer and emplo use a heavy taper crimp to ensure a complete powder ignition.

It isn't a video, but the same information is posted on the CMP website in the M1 Carbine section, under the "Shooting with accuracy" link. I doubt it has anything to do with law suits, the video probably just got lost during the website upgrades over the years.

Thanks for the pdf file. I have been looking for it for some time.
