Hornady Custom Ammunition hunting 30-30 Win. cartridges

In this new, ongoing series of posts, I’ll present an ammunition-related handloading component or cartridge that may-or may not-have been bettered via technological innovations, and I encourage you, the reader, to build a concise case either supporting or refuting its very existence. Remember, personal experience adds validity to one’s argument, as well as interjects flavor, and both are important here. Most importantly, have fun.

Let’s begin with an oldster, the .30-30 Win., which was introduced in 1895 and has a SAAMI-established maximum average pressure (MAP) of 42,000 p.s.i. Considering the myriad ammunition-related advancements since the late 19th century, is there a legitimate reason that the .30-30 Win. is still around? You decide.
