    Well, 60 rounds of ammo is worth at least $50. I'd probably buy it.

    Well guys,

    I'm pretty picky about the guns I buy..

    I went and looked it over, and passed on it.
    It was OK, but not as nice as the picture looks.

    It fit me the same as my grandsons Red Ryder....know what I mean ?
    I believe it to be a youth model.
    SN dates its birth in 1979.

    It was just OK, the only thing it had going for it is its 30/30 caliber.

    Just didn't make me giggle..

    Oh well, keep my eyes open.

    Yup, sometimes they just don't peg the needle...but guns are like buses, there will be another one pretty soon.

    .30-30 in a single shot has so much potential if you reload. You can utilize all those pointy bullets. :p

    Hah. Not so long ago, I was fascinated by that 'potential' - looked at several bolt action rifles but didn't find one I wanted. "Further investigation" indicated that there ain't much one can do to 'snappify' the cartridge. 300 Savage performance just ain't in it.

    Ummm, nope. Sure you're not going to gain much as far as speed and energy, enough to make it noteworthy that is but having a MUCH wider selection of bullets IS a nice option. Remember, as it is, that cartridge has accounted for countless deer yet somehow now, ppl see it as meek and unsuited for anything above a coyote.


    Ahh, but with those bolt actions, OA cartridge length is more of an issue than with a single shot as it needs to freely feed from the magazine.

    I do load spitzers in my Handi Rifle. One of my favorite loads used Reloaded 7 to push the 125 grain Nosler BT to 2550 fps. There's room for maybe a little more but I like what I get at 2550. I push the Hornady spire point to over 2300 fps with 335. The only caveat to the Spitzer that there are some that are heavily constructed and don't expand well in the 30-30.

    My point is that I reload all those nifty pointy tipped bullets in 30-30 for my Winchester lever action. I just load them in one at a time. Don't need a single shot in 30-30. Never have had an OAL issue.
