have any of you experimented with hornadys new ballistic tip type ammo for the lever action. the airport area i am hunting will allow 30-30`s and shotguns so i may opt for the old marlin on this hunt? also what was your furthest 30-30 kill?

God bless,
Bill

I drew a mulie tag for 2nd season in October and will be using the new Hornady ammo. I'll let you know how I like it, but it will probably be too late by then.

My longest shots so far with my Model 94 have been some coyotes; all at 40 yards or less out of a blind. Haven't had any big game in the sights yet with it.

7point , i've used a sears/ted williams 30-30 lever action for the last 20 yrs , i've taken 30 or more whitetails with it and my longest shot was 125
yds. and my closet'st shot was well lets say 5yds. I always use winchester ammo 150 grain as it seems to luv those things. i still have the same scope on it an old tasco and believe it or not i've sighted the scope once in 20 yrs ..

I've shot several whitetail with a M 94 thats maybe 40 years old. Federal 170 gr. 15 feet to 110 yards, and most of them dropped. All of them, I guess. But I just use my pistols now, but yeah, 30-30's are real fun guns.
