Default Nice attic find!



Advertise Here

So a friend of mine was rooting around in his attic and comes upon a Winchester 94 in 30-30. (He said it. I believe it.)

The serial number dates it around 1975, and it has remarkably little wear and tear.

Neither he nor I am very familiar with the rifle, and he asked me what was the better ammo to use for basic plinking and defensive use. Any suggestions?

My suggestion is to keep looking and rooting around thoroughly in the house and on the property!

You never know what’s hidden in the walls and under the floorboards until you look... ��

Winchester, Hornady, Federal, Remington all make quality hunting rounds 140 gr to 170 gr and up all hits pretty hard. If you just want plinking ammo Privi Partisan and the like make fairly inexpensive ammo. You really aren't going to go wrong with any of it. What a great find! Those old lever action guns are a lot of fun to shoot and still very practical today.
