Re: .45 Colt vs. .30-30
Its been mentioned twice now and I too want to be sure its not thought that I don't like the 30-30... Its not that at all. I like the 30-30 just fine!!
The 30-30 is a caliber thats been there and done that, it flat works and all the ''bad'' you read about it is almost 100% people looking to blame something for there poor accuracy or hunting ability.
The 30-30 is pretty much a 200yard gun, mostly because of accuracy constraints of its open sites. Where the 45Colt lever hot loaded is under the same limitations. Its large diameter bullet makes up for the vel loss with in those yardages.
