pointy 30-30 loads?
wasn't intending on loading in 30-30 yet, but have worked up a good load for my 30-06 and this weekend fell into some free brass from a buddy. most of it was 30-30 but did end up with a small bag of 308, and on last look, apparrently a couple ziplocks of some old looking 30-06 with crimped primers. I'll save those for another day till I fell like cleanign them up..
in any case.. worked on 30-30 last night.. got about half sized and deprimed and trimmed.
every now and then hit a few that had active primers.. musta been puleld ammo? anyway. was using my marlin 336 LA to deactivate most o f the primers as my savage 340 had a hard time swallowing some of them as they apparrently had been fired in a gun with a loose chamber... the 336 almost wouldn't chamber them.. but they went into battery enough to pop caps.. after resize and trim, the 340 handled the cases with just a hair more than normal bolt pressure to chamber them. once they are fired in that gun or the marlin, I assume that will size up better..
anyway.. back to topic.
i know for my marlin tube feeder LA gun it's round nose only.. or the hornady lever revoloution type ammo.. etc. but for my savage 340 bolt gun, it's removeable box mag fed. I could concieveably use pointy ammo for it.
any opinion or reccomendations on that?
