Might have to start reloading for the 30-30. Been very difficult to find ammunition. About the only one I regularly (every few months) seem to find is Hornady 160gr FTX which isn't a bad option but you know.

Anybody have any favorite loads?

Mate, the 160gr FTX is a fantastic and accurate bullet in my Mod 94 Winchester. The powder I use is an ADI powder, Benchmark 8208, and it is brilliant. It seems IMR list this powder as IMR 8208 XBR. Have a look at their load data and use it to develop a load. Oh, and I use Remington LR primers exclusively, and I also use the LEE Factory Crimp on all my rounds.

Good memory Elvis. Speer 170 gr FN Hot Core over 32 grains of W-748. Three shot group at 100 yards of 1 7/8" spread from a 1949 Win 94.

When I reloaded 30/30, I used any 170gr bullet withIMR4064, IMR4895, 748 and found that they were accurate.

IMO it has to be the easiest rifle caliber to work with.
