3030

  1. Ammunition and Reloading
    What can you guys tell me about the 30-30 ackley improved? Anybody shoot it? Whats the advantage of the ackley compared to 30-30 win? I have a Marlin 336 in 30-30 and was told it is pretty simple to have the gun rechambered for the AI round.

    I haven't seen 30-30 in stock for a while. Good price also. Hornady® LEVERevolution® Rifle Ammunition : Cabela's
  3. Ammunition and Reloading
    These suckers are tough to find. I think Hornaday has slowed/stopped production on them. So, I'm wondering if anyone has seen these around? Not picky on weights (150-170gr), and I'll shoot lead, too. Just want something I can run thru my lever. Even Beikirch's doesn't have anything in...

    I might be able to get a Winchester 94 in decent condition for around 380.00. Its in .30-30. I also wanted a lever action because of the cowboy movies and I felt they make excellent brush guns that you dont mind knocking around and dinging up. Only thing I wanted a stainless steel one in .357...
  5. Shotguns
    I took this bad boy (the 12 gauge) out to the range for the first time the other day. I shot a couple rounds of 00 buck, then several target loads (#8). The way some folks talk about this, I was expecting it to kick like a mule. I actually feel like my .30-30 has a sharper kick than the shotgun...
  6. Ammunition and Reloading
    so i am reloading some plinking 30-30 ammo. I am tying to load 100 grain bullets but there is no crimp groove, so i reloaded one round, no crimp, and when i go to load it into the 336 the bolt wont close all the way, any suggestions
  7. Ammunition and Reloading
    Does anyone have any 30-30 brass they are looking to get rid of? I have found a few sites selling it for a decent price but are looking for $20+ in shipping, so if anyone has any that want to get rid of let me know
  8. Ammunition and Reloading
    So, since it seems that these are made of either gold, or unobtainium, has anyone tried flattening the nose of a 30-06 bullet to use in a 30-30? Or maybe a .308?
  9. Rifles
    Well, I just picked up my first lever action at the Rochester Gun Show on Sunday. Was going back and forth between a Rossi and a Marlin... 30-30, .357, .44 Mag... Went with the Marlin in 30-30. Time to get dies and boolits! Since it's not a $1000 rifle, I'm expecting it to be a little less...

    SOLD PENDING FUNDS This is a gorgeous gun. serial dates it to 1955 manufacture. The bluing is 99% in my opinion. All original. It appears to have never been fired, and according to the previous owner it was bought new and stored (can't guarantee that though). No scratches where the bullets feed...

    SOLD PENDING PAYMENT Gun is unfired in box with all components. Only imperfection is a tiny scratch on grip as shown in photo. Only thing done to this was putting some lube in the action. But it was never fired. Since 1964 the Winchester Repeating Arms Company has produced special, limited...

    I have been watching the various threads on this forum for several weeks, and because I am new here and have yet to post (I am getting a notice from the administrators to post soon)... I have a legal question to pose. I have been unable to find any clear answer concerning the legal requirements...
  18. Ammunition and Reloading
    Whats i a good powder that i can use for both 30-30 and 30-06. I was thinking either Varget or IMR3031, would IMR4895 be to slow?

    my hunting buddy uses a 30-30, shot a doe opening day, bled a lot but we could not find. He shoots at an 8 pointer from 150+ yards late Wednesday, grabs some fur and a bit of blood, loses blood trail, so he goes out and buys a .243 Ruger bolt. Any thoughts on power of this 90-100 grain load vs...

    I have a Winchester 94AE Saddle ring with a 16'' barrel that just beats the heck out of me. Anyone else in the same boat? Don't get me wrong I love the gun, but she's a plinker for me, would anyone know if anyone makes lighter loads than 150 gr. Or would I just have to buy some new brass and...
