he .30 Winchester Smokeless first appeared in Winchester’s catalog No. 55, dated August 1895. When chambered in the Winchester Model 1894 carbine and rifle, it was also known as .30 Winchester Center Fire or .30 WCF. When the cartridge was chambered in the Marlin Model 1893 rifle, rival gunmaker Marlin used the designation .30-30 or .30-30 Smokeless. The added -30 stands for the standard load of 30 grains of early smokeless powder and is based on late-19th century American naming conventions for black powder-filled cartridges. Both Marlin and Union Metallic Cartridge Co. also dropped the Winchester appellation, as they did not want to put the name of rival Winchester on their products.
The modern designation of .30-30 Winchester was arrived at by using Marlin’s variation of the name with the Winchester name appended as originator of the cartridge, but .30 WCF is still seen occasionally.
The Winchester Super-X Power Point Centerfire Rifle Ammunition is for whitetail deer hunters who are looking for efficient bullets that increase accuracy. These quality bullets pack a punch that is ideal for the hunter of larger game. This bullet is comprised of lead alloy and metal jacket. The nose is filled with soft lead alloy that is strategically assembled wide open. There is also a jagged metal jacket that works with the lead alloy surface. Together they manipulate the extent of the bullet’s expansion creating a devastating effect to the target.
