Default Re: 30/30 Special bullet?

Well, you're right. Loading 'spitzer' style bullets for the .30-30 is very common...with the bolt action crowd. Whether it would make a tube magazine fed rifle 'more accurate' is debateable. For myself, I've never thought of the .30-30 cartridge as a long range number. For a lever action carbine (ala Winchester/Marlin) in dense territory or as a firearm of opportunity, the flatnose 170 grain bullet works very well. Of course you could always get your hands on an old Savage 99 in .30-30 and the problem would be solved.
