Ron, I was in SD at a remote gun range and a local showed up with a 30-30 with open sights.
I've heard that they're accurate, but accuracy isn't much of an issue for me. Me I have a 3006 and have never felt undergunned, but have never taken an elk past 150. Heck if i still had a 30-30 I'd probably still use it. .186) spit from a 20-inch 30-30 barrel at an optimistic 2,250 fps in a 10 mph right angle crosswind.
My first elk hunt.
Better yet, bring it over and you can help.
Your 30 -30 is fine for elk and black bear out to 150 yds.
He wants to use a 30-30 for ELK, not deer. I think a 30-30 is underpowered for big game to begin with, and its trajectory does not lend itself well at all for long range shooting. in some ways the hunting world would be better off, if it was just a open sighted 30-30 and some flat nose bullets,,,,,put the hunt back into the hunt,,,.
Your email address will not be published. Yep, still scared - put me up 15' and that is about it. I am a proud owner of a pre-64 Win M94 in 30-30 and have been hunting with it for the past 19 yrs. they penetrate and leave a wound channel that you could drive a mac truck through, i would love to tell you what a solid copper mushroom looks like but i cant because i have never retrieved one! Not high performance by today's standards for sure but certainly adequate for knocking down elk.
I imagine you could,... but shot placement would be critical,.. as would your distance to the elk. For some reason north American hunters always seem to be looking for a bigger more powerful cartridge when calibers like the 30-30 are more than adequate. Keep up the articles. Location: Puyallup, WA / Grand Rapids, MI . Sold that gun for $100 because I needed the money.
The very name of the cartridge hints at the proper powder charge; while using the black powder-era nomenclature, the latter number in the name is actually the smokeless powder charge. One of them is planning on using a 30-30. Stupid and ignorant just because I didn’t detail the 140-grain MonFlex bullet in Hornady’s LeverEvolution 30-30 ammo? This was in the 1970s when thousands of city “hunters” would come to the Catskill Mountains to …..??? I’ve tried every factory ammunition they make. I like the way Ron looks at things.
I miss judged a down hill shot 2 years ago and killed one at 530 and known what I know now would of never taken the shot.
its true that shot placement is key but my opinion is that even if my shot isnt perfect (and accidents happen) i want to know that my game is still going down. I'm sure the .30-30 can kill an elk at 200 yds., but …
He said, go out behind the seat is a blanket, be careful. Brent: except for this one friend of mine in SD. Hunt within the limits of the gun, and enjoy!!! That or a .38-55 lever action with a 22" barrel or model 7 in 350 rem magnum. read comparisons between it and the 30-30 in this previous RSO blog, Shooting’s Family Affair. It’s usually still hot and humid.
The young guys look at me like I’m some kinda dinosaur.
I noticed you did not mention IMR 3031 in your list of suggested powders.
You might get a 50 yard shot from a tree stand, but rarely that on the ground. 1000 yard competitors keep 308's going super sonic all the way to the target.
Update 2: 10 points to best answer.
My 52 yr old Marlin done it again … No scope … 5 Winchester 170gr Power Points. So what would the difference be (. I think the leverevolution rounds are a bit overhyped. Consider its ballistics: the 30-30 Winchester on a good day might push a 150-grain flat-nose bullet from the muzzle of a 24-inch barrel 2,400 fps. I'm not sure you caught his intentions,.. At 200 yds. I too have a Chinwester 30-30… also have various other calibres including scoped rifles.But if Headed out for a wander around the back 30, I’ll invariably carry either the Trapper or lately a 92 Winchester in 32-20… either ‘works’ within their designated range limits… Most times I don’t fire a shot.. but they’re There in hand if I have to… and Thats the point ! It's fine. The most accurate load in my Winchester 94 uses a 170-grain Hornady InterLock round-nose bullet over 30.0 grains of IMR4064, sparked by a CCI 200 primer, with a muzzle velocity of 2,025 fps. I've seen a skinny, drunk hillbilly take 2 or 3 .30-30's and live. A 30-30 will handle Elk and Blackies, good shot placement is key. My 6 year old seem to be rather fond of the Ol’ 30-30! Since last year, I have acquired another one, the Teddy Roosevelt Commemorative 94 with 26″ octagon barrel.
30-30s nine times out of ten when hunting in brush.
If you are prone to bumping into elk in the bush at 50 yards then a 30-30 will do the job with a well placed shot.
I wouldn't be afraid to push the barnes 150 xfb made for 30-30 at an elk up to 150 yds.
This represents a 150-grain round-nosed .308” bullet (B.C. Of course a 30-30 has killed lots of elk. Not just elk, but all north american big game.
I knew it's limitations, and passed up many shots before pulling the trigger. Anything of 170-180 gr or the new Hornady Leverevolution bullets should do fine. I load them for a buddies 30-30 and he's probably shot 7 deer with that bullet and never had a recovery.
