Most lever-action shooters are familiar with the 30-30 Winchester ammo, a rifle cartridge first designed for the Winchester Model 1894 rifle. The caliber is also known as the .30 WCF (Winchester Center Fire) or 7.62x51mmR in metric terms.
Conventional 30-30 ammo features a round or flat nosed bullet rather than a spitzer point to ensure safe feeding in tubular magazines. Some newer loads like Hornady's LeveRevolution series feature polymer spitzer tips that provide improved ballistics without posing a safety hazard.
Typical 30-30 Win loads fires a medium weight bullet in the 130 grain range with a muzzle velocity of about 2,500 feet per second. While the cartridge lacks the long-range punch of the .30-06 Springfield or .308 Winchester, it is relatively light-kicking and performs well against deer and other game at appropriate distances.
