Red_eagle,

Looking forward to seeing your reports on the new barrel, but I can't help but wonder: Why in the heck did you go with a FP bullet, out of an Encore barrel?? One of the real benefits to loading your own 30/30 rounds from a Contender, Encore, or any other single-shot, is you can choose a pointed bullet for better long-range performance. :cool:

Anyway, be sure to let us know what she does, at the range.

Same Here

When I read your post I immediately thought the same thing as broom_jm stated.

Check out any of the .308 cal pointy bullets and don't be affraid to go heavier than the "normal" 30-30 loadings. My wifes .30-30AI absolutely loves the 190gr SMK's and even shoots the 210 Bergers reasonably well.

Also....seat them bullets(any bullet)waaaaaay out,just off the lands,for better accuracy. Let us know how she goes. -----pruhdlr

How did your range trip go? I bet the flat-points were pretty accurate even if they aren't quite as good for longer range work.
