Something that I've always noticed, but have never thought to ask. I've got a Marlin 336 chambered in .30-.30 that I use during deer hunting season. Every .30-.30 round that I've seen has always had a lead nose, whereas other rounds come in full metal jacket. Is there a reason for that?

Not all .30-30 ammunition does have a lead nose, however. The Hornady LEVERevolution doesn't. It's designed to be more aerodynamic and shoot flatter. It still doesn't have a metal pointed tip, though, so it doesn't have a primer resting on something that would set it off, as a traditional FMJ cartridge would in a tube-fed magazine.

Ok, that makes sense now. I never thought about a sharp tip setting off the primer in a tube fed magazine.

I reload the 30-30 using Nosler balistic tip boolits. However, they are for my Contender super 14. My favorite round for Contenders.

in a Contender 10 or 14, the 30=30 is a Really powerful cartridge. On Iron Chickens it is really authoritative.
