    Yes

    Al,

    My HV rifle also uses an action that I built. The bolt head for that rifle also uses interchangeable bolt face bushings. Sizes range from 222 Rem. all the way to the belted magnum. I have...

    I think a lot of shooters also forget Harvey Miller's .1629" agg. from around 1980 with his 30-30 based 6 MCR. This was the first ever sub .2" agg. ever shot, and that record stood for many years. ...

    Yes I do Jim. He asked about a 168 gr. bullet at 2800 fps as a baseline performance, so he could compare the performance of the 30-30 to the 308 Win. He never planned on limiting himself to one...

    Gene,

    The 30-30 simply makes the most energy with the least powder of just about any cartridge. If you look in all of the Speer reloading manuals, they mention that many reloaders have asked if...

    Jim,

    You are wrong again. I finished with a standard 30-30 and a 200 gr. bullet. Direct quote.

    " I decided to use the 200 gr. Sierra Matchking. By limiting the muzzle energy to aprox. 3000...

    Jim, you seem to be missing the point. I never said a 2" group would win. I simply said you have 2" plus of drift at 1 mph of wind variation. The 30-30 is as accurate as your 6BRA if not more, and...

    Jim

    I was making a fair comparison between a 30-30 and a 6BRA at 600 yards. We started with the 168 gr. bullets because we had them. We used them for checking velocity with the Labradar. We reached...

    Getting Even More

    I decided to maximize the long range wind bucking ability of 6mm and 30-30. Calculations were done using the highest BC readily available bullets. For the 6mm, I used the Sierra 110 gr. and a G7 BC...

    Jim,

    Your argument about the 30-30 coming up short when compared to other long range cartridges is certainly a fair comparison, but here is the real question. Should we stop using the 308...

    Poor Bolt Design

    I have delivered the rifle to Nez. We put about 30 rounds through the gun, mainly seeing which powders would be the most usable to achieve velocities between 2700 fps and 2800 fps. The highest...

    The Starline brass I tried held up to pressure very well, but mine had a rim on it, and that does make a big difference in pressure capability. It was good for about 3400 fps from a 118gr bullet...

    The N120 is capable of getting too hot in the 30BR, or my .150" short 30-30, but it's not crazy sensitive. The loads I shot were high density loads, that were almost touching the base of the bullet...

    N120 for the 30BR

    As many of you know, I have some of my 30-30 barrels chambered in a .150" short 30-30. This cartridge equals the 30BR in capacity and velocity. Forget about the difference in the shape of the case....

    Berger has revised their BC's. They currently spec the 6mm 68gr flat base at a G1 of .255, and they spec their 30 cal. 115gr flat base at a G1 of .289. If we fire the 6mm bullet at 3400 fps, we get...
