This is what i use for whitetail, muledeer and is a very accurate load.

130grain Sierra,s.s.p.
Remington 9 1/2-m primers
AA-2230,33 grains
2.720" o.a.l.(my barrel)
my zero,1 1/2" hi at 150 yards,1 1/2" to 2" groups
f.p.s. 2273 over my chrony

I like the 130gr bullet,some say the 120gr is better.Everyone has an opinion.I have two 7-30 barrels,12" and 14"not much difference in performance that i can see.I have had good results with H4895 and W748,H335 the W748 gets alittle more velocity in my 14" tube.

7-30 loads

I use Winchester WLR primers, 29.0 grains of H322, and 120 grn Nosler ballistic tips. I don't recall exactly what I was getting when I put it over the chrony years ago, but I know it was well over 2200 and I'm thinking I was in the 2300 range. I just know that the load is effective for both hogs and deer and quit worrying about velocities at that point. I am more concerned about knowing the trajectory and my load will carry enough energy to make a good kill for any length of shot that I feel confident enough to shoot (about 200 yards max for me).

I chronoed that same load 29.0 grains of H-322 but with a 139gr SST and formed .375Win brass it went over the scren at 2248fps.
