    Federal makes a 125 gr. JHP and Winchester makes a 150 gr. JHP.

    PMC made the Starfire hollow point in 30-30.

    Why?

    Most "JHP" rounds are in actuality "drawn jacket" match rounds. They don't expand, they're no good for hunting, and I seriously doubt they'll improve a .30-30's accuracy. Besides, they still have a point small enough to impact a primer, which will make your magazine tube "gernade" and your friends will start to use you as a bad example a year or so after your funeral.

    This one guy I know here said he uses Winchester Silvertips in his .30-30 and they do work good on deer.

    Must be a dang big "hollowpoint" on it. If I was running an ammo company, the only .30-30 I'd sell would have big ol' flat noses on 'em.

    FWIW, see what ol' Elmer had to say about flat meplats...

    FWIW, Winchester's 30-30 hollowpoints are not pointed. They're rounded with a tiny little hole in the end. I've got a box of 150 gr. hollowpoints and a box of 170 gr. Silvertips in the other room. I'll try to post some pics later this afternoon/evening.
