The family and I are moving to central Washington in 2 weeks. I've hunted up and down the East Coast with my Marlin 336, and I really don't want to give it up. Hornady claims 300 yd accuracy from the 30-30 leverevelution ammo. Only a .5 in drop at these distances???? Has anyone on the THR put this to the test?? I can't even find a box of this ammo in the Sumter area.


Dr. Tad / RC I've been reading your opinions of ammo ballistics for a while what do you think? Is my rifle an open range thumper?

Or do I need to up-grade to a 45-70.
