How can you not love an ol' cowboy gun Broz?
I have shot many from Win to Marlin. All of them sucked.
However when Hornady came out with the Lever revolution ammo, I figured I'd try it for a backup bear rifle in the brush. To my suprise, that ol Winnie absolutely loved those 160 gr flex tip bullets! I never shot it from a rest, cause, well its a 30-30, come on. But I will say that my groups landed me well inside the kill zone way past its "effective range" for Deer/Bear. Off hand, or using a tree branch for a rest (not exactly scientific, cold hard accuracy data) but I'd say my old 94AE would be more than accurate enough for a wolf to 400 ish +/-. I shot rocks that far just to see if I could. Off hand went more like a battleship as far as bracketing my target to figure out my hold with open sights. But once dialed it was easily repeatable.
I'm guessing that with the right bullet, & the addition of optics (with is a sin by the way, to scope a cowboy
you could stretch it out there quite a ways with accuracy.
P.S. did anyone mention to you that Berger doesn't make a flex tip? I never woulda thought you'd give a 30-30 a second glance, just because of that.
Oh, wait you'll probably single sled the Bergers anyway
Good luck bud.
