Re: You're favorite "woods gun"? mine proved true today
Even though I take different guns on hunting trips, my favorite is my Savage model 340B, bolt action 30-30, with a side mounted, lightweight 4x32 scope. This is the most accurate gun I've ever owned and as we all know, the 30-30 will get the job done up to 200 yards. Forget about the ballistics you read, I shot a 250 lb black bear at 75 yards and the 30-30 zipped right through both shoulders and threw him to the ground. I think it weighs about 8 lbs with the scope on it and it has never failed me, I just hope it lives forever, since its about 50 some years old.
