Title: Finally!
Post by: seth30 on August 15, 2019, 06:40:03 PM
After years of getting skunked finally put it together.  Biggest bear I ever saw outside of a zoo and nailed him at 32 yards with a 30-30 using 170 Fed Gr.

Both we walked towards each other.  All the smoke from the fires are a great cover scent :tup:

Diidn't happen.. You know no bear is going to fall to anything but a magnum caliber.

The 30-30 is just a wall hanger and a historical peice.

Nicely done and even better that the 30-30 scores again!

Thanks guys!  The 30-30 is a underrated caliber IMO.  Plenty of animals have been taken with the gun.   :tup:

It has very similar ballistics to the 7.62x39 AK/SKS round.

30-30 is a fantastic round. Definitely built for west side hunting.
