Favorite .30-30 factory load?
Picked up a nice 1973 Marlin 336 last week, and would like input from .30-30 hunters and shooters as to what they like to knock deer down with and/or find accurate. And yes, I know just about all of them work equally well and that the .30-30 has a fine reputation for 100-150 yard deer hunting, I just want some real life experiences. I picked up a box of American Whitetail by Hornady 150 grain RN to get the scope dialed in. I've always hunted with bigger guns (.25/06, .30-06, .300 Win Mag) so I always wanted a handy lightweight short range .30-30, and would like to take it out this season.
