Since you don't have to load the the bullets into a tubular magazine like on the lever-action rifles, I handloaded the cases with pointed bullets, figuring a bit better accuracy over the round-nose factory ammo.

Being that I like different, and also am somewhat deviant, I used the metric designation for the .30-30 and put it on all my ammo boxes - 7.62x51R. A .308 diameter bullet loaded into a case that is 51 mm long and is Rimmed.



Other shooters would see the boxes and ask what kind of cartridge that was. I would hand them a loaded round and tell them it was based on the .30-30 Winchester round. They would solemnly nod their heads being duly impressed and say that it was a pretty cool cartridge...I never told them, and always got a kick out of doing that.

You may not think it is funny, but it always made me laugh.

Its not uncommon to find silhouette shooters who know more than one way to "blow smoke".
