    30-30 Accuracy

    So, what can a person expect from a Henry 30-30.
    I reload, so i can taylor what it likes. Do they tend to like them heavy, 160- 170. I really am fond of the 125,130 gr. Bullet. Sierra , Speer..

    I do not reload. But, my H009 seems to like 150 gr. in the Winchester flavor.

    Mine is the gen 2 H009 with the XS ghost ring sights. I don’t have a scope on it, but it seems to be plenty accurate. I load 150 grain Hornadys or Sierras with 30 grains of IMR3031. It seems to like my load.

    Any loading by FEDERAL or Winchester should produce groups of 2 inches or less at 100 yards.

    If I do my part, mine will shoot 1 Inch at 100. Doing my part is not all that easy tho.

    If you really want to see what your .30-30 can do load up some 150 grain SPBT bullets with careful, hand weighed charges.
    Ammo loaded with SP bullets turn your rifle into a single shot due to the OAL but will also reveal its accuracy potential.
