30-30 WINCHESTER IN STOCK

 

The .30-30 Winchester ammo for sale./ 30 Winchester Center Fire  cartridge was first marketed in 1895 for the Winchester Model 1894 lever-action rifle.[2] The .30-30 ammo online  (or “thirty-thirty”), as it is most commonly known, and the .25-35 were offered that year as the United States’s first small-bore sporting rifle cartridges designed for smokeless powder. Since its introduction, it has been surpassed by many cartridges in the long-range shooting attributes of speed, energy, and trajectory,[3] yet remains in widespread use because of its practical effectiveness in forested hunting situations.[4]

 

Characteristics and use[edit]

A Winchester 1894 in .30 WCF.

When the .30 WCF was introduced, it was seen as fast and flat-shooting: 160 or 165 grains at 1,900 to 2,000 fps and a 4 inch drop at 200 yards if sighted in for 150 yards.[15] The cartridge’s common loads are 150 grain (MV 2,390 fps from a 24-inch barrel) and 170 grain (MV 2200 fps from a 24-inch barrel).[16]

In Canada and the U.S., the cartridge has likely, at some point, been used on all big game species.[17] More recently, it has been used on whitetail, mule deer, pronghorn, caribou, elk, moose, and black bear.[18] It is commonly said that in the U.S. and Canada more deer have been killed with the .30-30 than with any other cartridge, and perhaps this was true for a time in the U.S. It is unlikely to be true in Canada where, for a period, military surplus rifles in .303 British were widely available and used; they were cheaper than lever-action rifles and the cartridge was more powerful than the .30-30.[19] The .30-30 is commonly seen as usable on deer up to 150 to 200 yards
