A very similar round, the 303 Savage, was loaded with a 190-grain bullet. That was the standard weight for that cartridge, and its dimensions were not much different than the 30-30. Loading data is probably still available for that cartridge & bullet, and it would give you a starting point. Have fun with your project.Just the usual would anyone suspect a sudden bolt in your face? Im very cautious with these experiments. I don't believe the reloading manuals exclude sizes just because none asked.
Ballistic of the 30-30 were very much improved with this bullet. The FTX was the bullet that opened my eyes to these what if questions on the old lever gun calibers.yes it does!! I hunt in western Wi and shooting 75 yards thru valleys and woods is a long shot. shot some real nice deer with that rifle for sure!!
Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1
Nightforce is such a solid combo of reticle, available elevation, glass that is good enough to shoot at the longest range you can dial. Nightforce has bullet proof construction that can handle the incidental horse rolling or some other rodeo action. -- bigngreen
The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
