Go with the 30-30. I load for that caliber and it is an easy round to get along with. I use mostly Leverevolution powder. Nice fast accurate load.Just a beginner reloader (now successfully reloading three handgun calibers)... Which rifle caliber do you suggest I start with? .223 or .30-30?
is one of these best to learn first before moving to the other?
First time reloading, yes, but after that, it is just like commercial brass.I always thought brass prep for the 30-30 was easier than 223/5.56. It's commercial vs milsurp. Easier to establish the routine with commercial brass. Milsurp always involves an extra step or two.
I agree 30-30 brass use to be easier to find----but say hello to my little friend.................30-30 because it's more forgiving and you will be able to find your brass to reload again.
