Anybody ever converted a Marlin or Winchest
With regards to my .30-30 Journal, I am finished with the first 4 chapters
(1891-1895, Cartridge Development At Winchester; 1895, Introduction ; 1895-1904, The First 10 Years, and 1905-1927, The Second Generation).
I still have about 3 chapters to go, along with a section on reloading which will primarily deal with replicating all of the factory loads ever offered for this cartridge, from the Special 85 gr. Full Patch Peters load up to the heaviest, a 180 gr. loading. All in all, about 18 different bullet / velocity combinations(!).
If I could concentrate on finishing the project, I would hope to have it to the printer by September, but since I can only work on it off and on, I will be lucky to finish it by year end.
The good thing is that my research appears to be complete with no new information being uncovered in the past 12 months or so. That should help since I spent a fair amount of time on research in the past.
Thank you for asking and for your interest.
Good luck on your project. Please keep us posted on any further developments.
