Has anyone tried .30-30 accelerator ammo in a handi? I saw some and thought someone on here may have tried it. Just wondering if its worth buying.

I had very good result`s with my mod 94 in 30-30 . On the paire dog hunt.
Was hitting well with it out to 125 yards with the open sites.
Shot hight had to drop back site down all the way. Rich

I've tried them in both 30-06 and 30-30. The 30-30s were shot from a Marlin 336, and a Contender. With the marlin it scattered in a ten inch circle at 100 yards. Could not get any better. With the Contender with a 10 inch barrel, they were scattered all over a 12 inch target at 50 yards. The few that hit the bullseye were accidents I believe. I wish someone could make them that were accurate.
Say a .22 cal bullet for use in a .338 Win Mag. That way I could shoot foxes and wolves while moose hunting.

I know that Fuzzy and Graybeard both were having good luck with them out here in the prairie dog towns.

I have never used them, but they were both hitting prairie dogs out to 150 yards (I think GB had some hits further out than that).

well i watched fuzzy blast a bunch of them out there at the P-dog shoot and he did real good too. but it just don't make since trying to shoot a 55gr bullet in a rifle made to shoot 150's almost as wired as try to shoot 90 grainer's out of our handi 223's it just don't need to be done.



my vote get an other rifle (besides its fun)
