Has anyone shot the Remington "Managed Recoil" Ammo in 30-30 Caliber?
Is so, what was your impression of it?
This newer Ammo is suppose to come out of the 30-30 Barrel at 2175fps with 1,313 of Muzzle Energy.
At 100 Yard's there saying 1820fps and 919 of Energy.
Yes I have shot Rem. managed recoil loads as well as on other maker's 125 gn. loads. They are light recoiling as advertised and since I have a couple of recoil sensitive ladies under my care I worked up a load myself. They work well. I developed mine so my ladies had a good option for self defense. I've read on this board that they work well on whitetails from stands and at somewhat limited distances otherwise. Shot placement is, as always, important. Hope this helps

I haven't shot those, but I have worked up my own load using the 125 gr Sierra and H4895. It chronographs around 2155 fps and is pretty comfortable to shoot. I loaded them for my brother to use when he starts my nephew shooting the 30-30.

I've always wondered about this ammunition. The only thing that keeps me from buying a box to try out is I feel that it is rather expensive when compared to regular hunting ammo.

Speaking of Managed Recoil loads, has anyone shot the Accelerator loads from the 30-30? I was scanning through my Cartridges of the World Book at lunch one day and came across it and was more than intrigued. Shooting a Saboted .22 slug from a 30-30 sounds like one hell of a Varmint Buster and the recoil shouldn't be that bad either.
I have shot the 125 grain loads from the 30-30 and the recoil was a lot more tame, but I ended up shelving the ammo at work and trading it for some 170 grain stuff only because it shoots better.

I bought one box of it for my youngest son to try when I first bought a 336Y.
I noticed a reduction of recoil, it's very mild.
Since then, I've loaded my own version using Sierra 125gr HPFN's over 28.5grs of Reloader-7....
very accurate loads and a young guy or woman can shoot them all day!

i remember the Accelerator ammo, when it first come out my dad bought a box, and we tried them out at 50yds. and we were not impressed with at all. my dad give the rest of box away to a fellow hunter to try, and he reported back that they shoot horrible in his rifle to. i have'nt a box of that stuff in twenty years or so. i now use the 125gr jhp's with IRM 4895, and it doe's real good. recoil is tame to, compaired to the 170gr.
A good load for folks who don`t like .........recoil.
The best part of the hunt is not the harvest but in the experience.
