I recently picked up a Contender with 375 JDJ & 6.5 JDJ barrels (Both SKS)
The previous owner gave me his 375 load data, but right now I have pretty slim pickings on powder so I'm interested in what everyone else is using. Probably stick in the 270gr area. Really looking forward to playing with this one, mostly thinking moose & bear.

The 6'5 JDJ I'm not quite as excited about. Not sure where it fits in for Alaska hunting. Seems a little marginal for caribou & black bear which are the smallest animals I reguraly get the opportunity to hunt. Some good load data might change my mind.
Also I've been told you can start with 30-30 brass. What's the procedure?
