31gr H4895, Lyman Super Moly Lube, about 1800fps, nose beagled to .300 and driving bands to .310.
Want to get an older mold as I hear and read they MAY toss a bigger bullet.

Try Frank Marshall's load of 21 gr of 4759. I have an older mold that casts big also. About .313.

'284 is my favorite bullet for 30 calibers. I started with Marshall's 21 grains of SR 4759 using linotype bullets and they worked well. But for me, they leaded right in front of the chamber with ww's + 2% tin. They are 10 grains heavier, softer and smaller.
My shooting pardner and I have 4 moulds for this: early one piece Ideal (.298/309), 70's (.302/.313) 80's (.300/.313) and 00's (.299/.310). Each is an individual and depending upon how much the cherry has been sharpened, what size they cast.

I cast my 3211284s from WW alloy, size to 0.309 or 0.310, taper in an Eagan die ( same taper as the throat), load 11.5 gr 2400 and set bullet out to seat into the lands.
Velocity at 10 feet is about 1250fps; average group size is less than 1.0 inches at 100 yards for 5-shot groups. This is not a fluke, I get these results on a regular basis.

I was out of my mind when I wrote the above. The correct load is 11.5 grains of UNIQUE.

I would guess that 311284 would shoot well out of the 30-30 as I think I remember FM articles. I don't remember if they will work in the .308... will they extend down into the powder below the neck?

Depends on the throat and seating depth. I've shot it in both catridges with 4759. It was definitely fun out of the old Marlin in 30-30. Don't remember the load off hand, but I could see the rounds going down range with a scope! The Savage in 308 was another story. It didn't work out but that was my fault. Got alot of leading that, in retrospect, was probably due to copper fouling still in the barrel. In both cases, I was seating the bullet for single loading to lightly engrave the bullet when the action is closed.

I have had this blt for many years. It was the first mold I bought (used), and it is still in use only now I have it HP'd. My best load for it in 06 is 22 gr of 2400. Good luck!

I've just loaded some up for a Long Lee Metford in .303" British from an NEI mould that drops this design at 313".
Lubed with Carnauba Red and fitted with a gator check over 19gns of VV N110 it shoots really well.
Its seated out to the bottom lube groove and that bore riding nose just fits nice and snug when chambered.
