My brother got a 30-30AI carbine barrel a while back, and we have not gotten past fire form loads with it so far.
I just ordered him an MGM Contender Pistol barrel in 30-30AI to go with it for Christmas. I went long at 15.875" and I will probably finish it up with a Three Gill Muzzle Brake. This will be used for Range Shooting and Tree Stand Deer Hunting at <150 yards. Twist is 1 in 12 for 110 - 170's.
I would like to hear of your experiences with a 30-30AI hunting, what bullets work well, and any load data you might share.
I have 125BT Noslers, as well as the Sierra 125 grain 30-30 Bullets. I am pretty sure that the Sierra's will work OK to 150 yards.
See You At The Range
