Re: What .30-30 bullet has worked best for you?
I've shot five deer with the 30-30, and used a different bullet for each deer, now that I think about it...Most accurate has been the 170 gr. Hornady flat-point that I worked up a load for..Shot an eight point through the heart and it ran about twenty yards and flipped over...I shot my first deer, a button buck, with a 150 gr. Winchester Power-Point...Same thing. It ran about twenty yards. I made probably the luckiest shot of my life on a doe that was running flat-out at about 80 yards, with a Sierra 150 gr. round nose. Deer flipped right over (about three times)...The 170 gr. Silvertip has worked well, and it is my personal favorite because it is uniquely "Winchester"..It just goes with the Model 94!....Years ago I loaded some Speer 110gr. hollow points for a friend, and he dropped a buck right in its tracks with one, now I'm stuck loading these for him for life!
