Somehow a Ruger No.1A and a Browning 1885 both in 30/30 are getting ignored after I acquired them last year. How are your single shot 30/30s shooting? Thoughts? Until I can get to the range.....

Only have one, a T/C Contender. Can’t do any better than a ragged one group at 100 yds. Always takes one shot to kill deer. Might do better if I put some glass more respected than a K2.5 Weaver.


I am..........disturbed.

I love my 2.5 Weaver with the post reticle. My contender carbine is a 30-30AI but I did order it from an individual as a 30-30. Glad I kept it as it is a tackdriver.

I hope you're good and ashamed of yourself for that.

Just an old H&R Handi Rifle with a 2-7x33 Leupold Vari-XII here. Only shot it on paper to 50 yards and it tears a ragged hole with Remington 170 gr Core Lokts. Lined up some of the smaller red solo type cups at 125 yards and put a hole in every one.

Mine has a 1-3 Weaver, I’m amazed how accurate it is every time I shoot it.


When I die I hope I don't start voting democrat.

A Handi Rifle in 30/30 is what got me started in enjoying hunting with single shot rifles. That’s what led me down the path of acquiring Ruger No.1 rifles, two in 30/30!

I'd love to see the 1885 brought out in the low wall version in 30-30.
It'd be lighter and mo fun to carry and use than a high wall imo.
A low power scope would seal the deal.....
