    Twenty some years ago, The Cast Bullet Association was begging Ruger to make up some 30-30's, but Ruger refused. We tried to get members to commit to buying them and still it was a "NO-GO".

    Don't feel bad. They didn't make anything for the .41 mag fans either.

    Finally, the 30-30s are rolling out. Mine is supposedly on the way, and I confirmed it with a second phone call.

    Short barrel, stainless steel is not my cup of tea. Blued with 26" barrel, I'd be there.

    I got the K1A. I wanted SS for weather proofing (humid here in the swamp, indoors and out) and the short barrel for being handy where we hunt. Here, a 30-30 is thought of as a brush gun. No long range shooting in the swamps. It'll still be good for a hundred yards if I ever hunt any place that open, but my longest shot ever on a deer was 43 yards, so it's not likely I'll need a sniper model. This'll be perfect!

    In '86 I borrowed a friends Ruger #1 in 45-70 to hunt deer. I lived on 10.5 acres in Jeffersonville Vermont. My property was surrounded on 3 sides by state forest property and my nearest neighbor was half a mile away. My wife, armed with a Mossberg 12 gauge pump and # 1 buckshot and myself never saw a deer during the entire season. I was totally overgunned with that 45-70 but it had a decent set of sights and was accurate at 150 yds enuf to hit a Marlboro pack of butts every time. I had complete confidence in the rifle. My wife loved her shotgun and she was an outstanding shot with it. It is a shame we never saw a deer..........

    Lipsey's did a small run of 30-30 blued #1As 10+ years ago. Bought one and never took it out of the box. Have never seen or heard of another.

    Nice, watching for the range reports. Nicer wood than my latest NO1, kinda jealous.

    I don't have any factory loads around. I do have a few hundred cast up for it and I just have to load them. I have a serious racoon problem that needs the application of a good 30-30.

    Fine looking rifle for sure. Bet it shoots as good as it looks.

    I generally do not care for stainless firearms, guess it’s the plastic stocks usually seen on them but that is a very attractive looking rifle.
