It wasn’t until 1894 when the first rifle was chambered for
this new round. Using a 160-grain metal patched bullet, the 1894 Winchester
Rifle was capable of reaching 1,970 feet per second. It wasn’t long before the
competitor Marlin Firearms company decided to chamber their own rifle with the
new round. Using the Union Metallic Cartridge company to replicate the .30
Winchester Smokeless, Marlin chambered their 1983 rifle with this caliber. In
fact, it would be Marlin who would change the name of the round to .30-30, as
it’s commonly called to this day, in 1895.
Perhaps it’s the history, or the fact that shooting a .30-30
round is one of the easiest shots with the least amount of recoil possible in a
rifle, that keeps it around. Whatever the case, it is safe to say that this
round isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. .
Each box contains 100 once fired brass shell casings. Headstamps are mixed. This is unprocessed brass sourced from commercial shooting ranges. The casings have been washed and polished, but not resized and may still contain the spent primer. It is recommended that all brass be inspected prior to being reloaded and fired.
