    Question Load for 16.5" barrel 30 30

    Have a 336rc with 16.5' barrel. Anybody have some loads that are tried and tested? As scarce and pricey as components are could sure use some info. Thanks

    not sure what i'd use, but i have a 16" 32 special (winchester "wrangler") that i decided would be a short-range deer and black bear gun, so i figgered i'd go for the heavier bullets at lower speeds to max the potential of the firearm. bad mistake!!! that little rascal kicks like a missouri mule with anything over 170gr pills, even at less than the top published loads. i'm guessing that you'll want to go with the 125gr to 150gr range of bullets if you want to shoot it much. i save my heavy-bullet loads fer my 336a's, which have some extra weight with that 24" barrel to dampen the recoil on the big thumpers. have fun with it; the shorties are fun to carry. wish they made a good 125gr to 150gr .321 bullet for the .32 special; i'd carry mine a lot more. mind yer topknot! windy
    sonny, whar i growed up "magnum" wuz another word fer "lousy hunter"!
