Owner of Buffalo Bore Tim Sundles on Buffalo Bore Heavy 30-30 Winchester Ammunition:
Buffalo Bore is introducing a truly Heavy 30-30 Winchester loading. This new load utilizes a 190gr. custom Hawk bullet and gives the venerable 30-30 here-to-for unrealized power and is designed so that the person who owns a 30-30 can now reliably kill elk or moose sized game. The 30-30 can now be carried as a defensive tool in grizzly country and will be much more effective in stopping a grizzly attack than any other 30-30 ammunition in the world. The custom 190gr. hawk bullet is designed with a harder core and thicker than normal jacket, so the expansion is minimal, thus insuring very deep penetration which is needed to break large bones and destroy organs deep inside large game animals. This load generates an unreal 2100 fps from normal 20 inch carbines this is the type of velocity that the ordinary 170gr. 30-30 loads generate, but again, we are using a 190gr. bullet. Check the below real world velocities from my personal stock, over-the-counter firearms truly amazing.
- 2071 fps -- Marlin Model 336 20 inch saddle ring carbine circa 1950's
- 2061 fps -- Win. Model 94 20 inch carbine circa 1980's
- 2075 fps -- Win. Model 94 20 inch carbine circa 1953
- 2116 fps -- Win. Model 94 20 inch carbine circa 1963
- 2172 fps -- Marlin model 336A 24 inch carbine circa 1940's
- 2146 fps -- Win. Model 94 20 inch carbine circa 1980's
- 2020 fps -- Win. Model 94AE 16 inch Trapper carbine circa 1992
- 1983 fps -- Savage 99 26 inch rifle circa 1917 - Not a Typo
Note that the longest barrel gave the slowest velocity and even the short 16 inch Winchester trapper model gives faster speeds than the 26 inch Savage 99 rifle, which shows that barrel length is not always the sole indicator of velocities a firearm will generate.
Buffalo Bore always uses stock over-the-counter- firearms that give real world velocities. Other ammunition companies normally use laboratory test barrels which give much higher velocities than stock firearms. We at Buffalo Bore see this long established practice as misleading to the consumer
