Anybody know anything about the new buffalo bore 190 grain 30-30 load coming out? Maybe this would give a little more confidence during Elk season?
$49.49 for a box of 20 ... wow! That comes to $2.65 per round including tax. I tried a box of Buffalo Bore .45 colt ammo a long time ago but never hunted with it though it shot well out of my Ruger Hunter. Those prices would make me dive head-first into reloading. Sorry I couldn't help.
Until the ammo companies finally discontinued them, it was a trick used by old timers after really large game to pull 190-grain bullets from .303 Savage cases for loading in .30-30s. It looks like Buffalo Bore is supplying that need once again.Originally Posted by Chris in Idaho
Pricy, but the stuff sure isn't made for plinking.

My problem is the cost of the ammo. At 50 bucks a box it is more than pricey. My 300 Win mag or 325 WSM is a heck of a lot more rifle than souped up 30-30 and factory ammo for them doesn't run that high.

Ain't gonna do anything Lever-E won't do on an elk. I dropped one in the back of a hotel parking lot in arizona and he didn't even flinch.
