Re: The Contender in 30-30AI strikes again.
RT, nice shooting!! I have a contender carbine with a 16 1/4" barrel in a 30/30 and have considered having it cleaned out to a30/30 AI. SKS will do it for $95, I talked to J.D. Jones and he said case life was poor that was why I did not do it. I have been shooting 130 Hornady in mine, but can do no better than 2350fps. Have not tried 4198 though. If your getting 10 firings that sounds like plenty of life, what brand of brass?? Thanks for the post, now I'll have another project to do.
