Sure, there are rounds that have been developed since the 30/30 made it's debut in 1895 but that is only to be expected. If there had been no improvement in 120 years or some folks in the business, that would look quite silly.
I have shot deer with a 30/30, and it killed them just as dead as those I shot with my .308, 12 ga slugs or .44 mag..
Just as dead, I tell you! ... LOL
I still maintain that the 30/30, in the eastern woodlands, where shots are normally 100 yards or less...and fired from those delightful lever guns, is right along the best cartridges for that specific reason.
IMO..the .44 mag in a rifle such as the older Ruger .44 mag carbine, is another one ! I have shot deer with a .44 mag (H&R), and that kills them very dead, also !
