With broad lands and shallow grooves, those JA barrels shoot cast VERY well with a minimum of fuss.

Try a Lyman 311299 cast with #2 alloy. I haven't loaded cast in years but my go to load was that bullet in any 30 cal military rifle. For powder, 4759, 4895, 4198, varget or unique will suit you well.
