30-30 WINCHESTER

30-30 Winchester ammo was introduced in 1894 as a companion cartridge to the model '94 Winchester Lever Action Rifle and was the first commercially available cartridge to be loaded with smokeless powder.

30-30 ammo actually began life as a breech-loading black powder cartridge and thus its numerical designation which indicates that it is a .30 caliber cartridge that was loaded with 30 grains of black powder. In fact, compared to other rifle cartridges of the time, the new .30-30 Winchester cartridge loaded with smokeless powder provided the hunter with much greater firepower than was presently available in a mid-bore caliber.

Judging by today's standards, the .30-30 Winchester is somewhat underpowered but, even so, according to ammunition manufacturer's sales records, it is still one of the most popular rifle cartridges ever designed. In fact, it is especially popular with Eastern deer hunters who commonly hunt their chosen game in dense hardwood forests and thus, they appreciate the quick handling characteristics of the lever action rifle and the moderate recoil of the .30-30 Winchester cartridge. Consequently, it is often chosen as the first rifle for young deer hunters for this very reason and, when loaded with lightweight lead "plinker" bullets, it also makes a fun target rifle. In addition, bullet weights for this cartridge usually rage from 100 grains to 170 grains and are normally available in a wide range of types.

It should be noted that when using this cartridge in rifles with tubular magazines, it is imperative that you only use bullets with either flat noses or the new elastomer tips in order to prevent accidental discharge caused by the rifle's recoil.
