Re: 30-30 bullet choice
Or 130 gr Speer HPs. My brother is shooting them in his Model 7 308 with 1/2-3/4" groups at 100 yards and 1.75" at 200m. His load is shooting at 3100 fps out of the short barrel. It has accounted for several whitetails out to 175 yards. The damage is consistent with what you would expect from a JHP at 3100 fps. The bullet does not exit from the boiler room inside of 125 yards as of yet, but accurate enough that he has taken a head shot at 175 yards with dramatic results.
