Rem model 14 30 cal

just bought a gun that ive wanted for some time. a rem model 14 in 30 cal. just wanted to own a piece of history. this isnt going to be a safequeen either. anyone have one? what ammo do u use and anyone know where i can purchase ammo for it? prob carry it for bear this year so heavier grain would be best. any help is appreciated.

take a kid hunting and fishing it will keep them out of trouble

I think you need 30 Remington ammo.Buffalo arms carries it.Look at this reloading thread.

Lucky you. I passed on a 30 and 32 couple years back because I couldn't find a source for ammo at the time. Last year I had some extra cash so I bought a few hundred rounds of brass for both... Do you think I've seen a 30 or 32 worth a wooden nickle since.

Buffalo is the only source for loaded ammo. And I can tell you they run out a lot on the Rem stuff. Your best bet is to load it. Graff's has brass. If the cost of a reloading setup worries you PM me.

Remember, shoot straight and shoot often.

I have one . Ammo can be found now and then at gun shows. I also reload for it and brass can be turned from 30-30 brass. I have been using 170 gr bullets and 30-30 reloading data can be used as it is basically a rimless 30-30

Hey Carl, if you can get some brass and dies I have the 46th edition Lyman reloading book and it lists the .30 Remington. Lists the same 150 and 170 grain bullets as used in a .30-30. Powders listed are all IMR in 3031, 4895, 4064 and 4320. Max velocity with the 170 grain is 2173 fps. Remington brass and Remington 9 1/2 primers.

Gun shop close to me had one in the 25 Rem.

Why oh why do you have to be in the opposite corner of the state from me? One of these days I'm going to have to break down and buy one off Gun Broker.
