I've killed deer with my '70 Winchester M94 from powder-burn distance to a lazered 236 yards. No other changes than a Williams FP receiver sight and a Skinner post front sight. The rifle absolutely loves 3031/170 Hornady FP, shoots them inordinately close together at 2127 fps.

I have to chuckle a little about how weak the .30-30 is stated to be, but my latest AR build is in a powerhouse round. .300 Ham'r, a modern equivalent to....you guessed it right....the .30-30!

I don't know how many deer it's killed, but it's a bunch. Some Black bear and pigs will also testify....no, they can't. They ded too.

I look at it as a damn good round for close in stuff, there's better for longer distance, and I like the rifles it typically comes in. If'n the Ham'r works like they say, I'll like it, too.

Better to stick with something with lots of knockdown power, like a 6.5 Creedmoor.

Bet the buck on the right died from laughter if that guy was wearing the same outfit.

Love the matching slip on retard shoes they’re both wearing.

When did they start making 165's for the .30-30 ? I've killed a pile with 150's and 170's but never seen any 165's.


Hornady used to make Leverevolution in 165 gr.

Thats a legitimate question....can a 30-30 buttstock beat someone to death?...yes, just not as quick as a 338 Lapua buttstock beating.
