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.

    I dialed my Winchester 94 in with this round with a Burris 3X scout scope mounted. It is accurate, and has noticably less recoil than 150 grain rounds. The fast expansion and light weight make this a great defensive round.

    I've been shooting this ammo for 7 years and I love it! One MOA accuracy in my Henry and lots of meat in the freezer. It's great for the East Texas woods

    this round is in my opinion, is the go to round for the 30-30, for deer, super accurate, and it hits like a 30-06, I use the 150gr. and absolutely love it, I wouldn't be afraid to hunt black bear using this round.

    Im not a hunter but have always enjoyed target shooting at long ranges. My Uncle started taking me to the out door ranges when i was a teen. Im almost 50 now and like to think im a pretty good shot. I have a Ruger mini-30 (7.62x39) a Remington 308 bolt action, and a model 96, 1960 Winchester 30:30 and its got the shortest range of the 3 rifles i mentioned.. Having said that, these rounds really changed the game on the range and flight characteristics of regular 30:30 ammo. It increases your range to about 250yds maybe a bit more if your good enough and the wind is kind to you...(this is at a range shooting from prone). I'm also one of these guys that made a special mount to hold a scope on the 30:30. Its top eject so the scope sits forward. (Ive been a machinist for 30 yrs and made my own mount...and no i didnt drill into the gun...it's a mint, pre 1964 model 96...im not crazy). Bottom line...i love this round. I know there will be doubters on the 250yrd range i have experienced.. Non the less this has been my experience with this ammo and my 30:30.
