looking for 30/30 cast load

So I have some 155 gr and 160 gr cast bullets. Looking for anyone's pet load for a 30/30 with cast bullets. I have gas checks and nongas check so any load can be worked with!
Also any one got a trail boss load for these puppys??

thanks

Yeah, fill to 70% of case volume and go up if you still have gas slipping through. Other than that, a really nice and easy load.
