Question M1 Carbine Military Brass amount of Powder?

Hi guys,

A question of amount of powder would you use in Miltary brass due to less case capacity to stay in safe parameters?


Using 110grain RNSP(Remington Brand), and RNFMJ.

Using Win 296 powder

Wanting to be in the range of 1900 to a max of 2000 FPS for better performance of the Round Nose Soft Point so I get the best expansion.




And has any of you tried for an alternative powder Hogden LIL'Gun? I saw that on the internet forum a few different places and several of the guys have said they have had great success with it and is accurate. Viewpoints on this powder???

15gr of 296 is not the max, it is the load for 110gr bullets.
It's not like you have tip-toe up to 15gr.
I chronographed different loads.
15gr with CCI 400 primer gives 1974 fps
14.5gr with CCI 41 primer gives 1988 fps
15.0gr with CCI 41 primer gives 2037 fps
Aguila 110gr gives 1994 fps.
It's worked for 75 years.

IMR 4227 is another great powder for the .30 carbine. Do you have a good reloading manual? I would strongly suggest getting one if you do not. You will find several good powders for the carbine, and your choice may depend on what powder is available to you.
