    I thought so too. It is not that expensive either, CTD has the 30 30 for $15 a box.

    Saw them and sold a few boxes too. They seem like a great idea and Hornady has a stellar reputation. The only real 'problem' is that they will shoot high in a gun sighted for standard 30-30 ammo, due to the higher velocity. Of course what that means is that these have a flatter trajectory than standard velocity ammo, which is a good thing. It just limits your ammo choices.

    Hawkeye - here ya go.

    I doubt I would bother with them for a single shot rifle - plus, I have my homeload flexibility too. If I had a 94 in thuddy-thuddy tho I would be well interested.

    Good article on em in the Jan. Guns and Ammo magazine. They are claiming extended accurate range with the new ammo. I don't own any lever guns, but would try this ammo if I did.

    I picked up a box to try it. Hornady's claims are, uh, right on target. Sorry. But it is great stuff.
