I used to use a 30-06 case with the neck and shoulder of the case cut off and a knot in a leather cord pulled down into the case through an enlarged hole through the primer pocket. I got about 60 grains of ffg in it that way, but without the knotted cord in a case, a 30-06 case would hold about 70 grains of ffg powder up to the bottom of the shoulder, which is where the case would be cut off at.
