3030TARGET
30 30 CONTENDER 100 YD GROUP

Description: I have been looking for a factory load that my 14 inch 30 30 contender likes and I think I have found it. This group measures 1 3/8" center to center. The load is Winchester 150 gr hollow points that I can get at WalMart. I think this will be the load I deer hunt with this season.

Thanks trademark. I do not have a way to check velocity but I have searched the internet for info on this factory load. The starting velocity should be between 2150 and 2200 fps. I ran it thru Hornady's ballistic calculator and the ballistics should look something like this: 0.5 inches high at 50 yds which it is, dead on at 100 yards which it is, 3.3 inches low at 150 yds and 10 inches low at 200 yds. I emailed Winchester about the load and with the information they gave me it should open up properly out to 200 yards. Where I hunt 150 yds is a long shot so it should work for me. I plan to test it at 150 yards in the future.
