Hello everyone,
I am on a quest for 30-30 improved information. I can't seem to find much of anything in the way of information on them. I found a little in the Ackley Volume #1 book regarding his version which seems to be the most common. So here is what I am asking, if you have one, how do you like it? Any pros or cons to your version? any reloading data? In Ackleys book, he lists a velocity in the range of 2700fps with a 150 grain bullet from a standard Winchester 94 chambered in 30-30 Ackley Improved. I think anyone with a normal 94 in 30-30, would like to be able to do this. If anyone out there has one, or any related info, I would love to hear about it.
Thanks Much
Juan

Thanks for the information fellas,
Yesterday, I spoke with Gary, of Reeder Custom Guns in AZ. He does a 30-30 improved called the 30-30 GNR. It is similar to the Ackley version, except the shoulder is moved farther forward for more powder space. Lets say, a whole lot more space. They are getting velocity numbers that are within 5% of a 308! All within the acceptable working pressures. I am still on a quest for more info, so anyone that has any, throw it in the pot! So far, the 30-30 GNR sounds like a pretty sweet way to go. Think, near 308 balistics from a 30-30 94! I guess a big bore in 307 would also do it, but where is the fun in that? Also, it is a lot cheaper to have my 94 rechambered for &#36100.00, that it is to find and but another Big Bore. <!--emo&:)--><img src="http://beartoothbullets.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=':)'><!--endemo-->

Marshall,
How much neck length do you suggest,for use with cast bullets. I guess the biggest trick with a 30-30 improved is finding the happy medium. <!--emo&:)--><img src="http://beartoothbullets.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=':)'><!--endemo-->
