Finally!
« 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.

Wow, that's a great bear. Congratulations!

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!

Congrats!
As long as we have the habitat, we can argue forever about who gets to kill what and when.  No habitat = no game.

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.

In archery we have something like the way of the superior man. When the archer misses the center of the target, he turns round and seeks for the cause of his failure in himself.

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