Reloading recommendations for .30 Carbine

Has anyone reloaded .30 Carbine with cast lead bullets. I'm looking for a recommendation for a good propellant with a 115 grain cast lead bullet.

you'll need really hard lead, just the right lube, great rifling, or paper patching or gas checks, or you'll get lots of fowling. I'd try for a heavier bullet and 1600 fps, not 1800+ Ask at a forum cast bullets com
castboolits.com

Interesting; so am I. It’s where I learned about “bill’s liquid lube’ for volume-lubing of cast handgun bullets. Lot of combined knowledge there.
