What about 30-30?
I have a 14" 30-30 barrel also.
Which one would be better for longer range deer.
The 7X30 waters it better than the 30-30 but Both of them in a T/C are REAL good choices. The 30-30 is cheaper if you just want to try store bought ammo to start with. I have a .223 Encore pistol that loves "cheap" store bought ammo (<1/4MOA @100 yds). That aint bad at all. Who knows you might get lucky too...
