    I have a lot of .30 Carbine 110 grain FMJ and SP bullets. I just got my dads 30-06 and some boxes of 200 grain rounds. I was wondering if there would be a problem loading the .30 Carbine bullets using IMR 3130. The M1 carbine fires them at about 1900 fps. Load data for the IMR 3031 indicates the 110 bullets will start off about 3200 fps. Target will be coyote, and or fefal dog.

    Over the years I have loaded hundreds of them. Not sure I used 3031 but if the book shows that load then there is no reason it wouldn't work. How accurate it is may depend a little on the twist in your barrel stablizing a shorter bullet. But out to 300 yards it should be a good Coyote load.

    I have been thinking of using them for 300 BO.
    Sierra shows loadings for their 110 SP.
