What's the difference between a .30-30 Winchester and the .30/30 Ackley Improved? Can a Winchester .30-30 shoot the .30/30 Ackley Improved?
Hey Hawg. I didn't know the difference, and neither did Chief Ten Beers, nowAckley removed most of the case taper and increased shoulder angle. No a standard 30-30 will not chamber Ackley Improved but standard 30-30 will work in an Ackley Improved, however it will fire form the cases to Ackley Improved.
