    Yep, I just bought an old 93 mauser in 7x57. Not because I have any need for it or really any use for it. I bought it only because I have wanted one for a long time. A 6.5x55 Sweed is on my list as well. Don't need it either but I want one. If you want a 30/30AI, you should have one, just that simple. I also want a 92 Win in 256 Win and I have picked up a 92Win a 25cal barrel and a reamer so I will have my 92 in 256W. Life is to short to do things you don't want to do. I hope your 30/30 AI shoots well. Good luck

    So far I've been shooting mostly 6.6 gr. of BE for fire forming loads @ 50 yards w/ a Lee 160 RN w/ a gas check. That load is very accurate, all I have to do is move the crosshairs 2 more clicks to the left. When I get enough brass ready and my dies, I'll probably load some regular A.I. loads with 165 gr. Hornady spire points or 150 gr Jacketed GameKings.

    Did I ever mention that I hate to trim brass?

    Henry just started offering 30-30 single shot rifles this week, along with 357 mag rifles as well. Buds gun shop had them in stock...

    The Handi is a very strong action. Mine came in 500 S&W mag which originally was loaded to 65,000 psi and has a very large case head even larger than the belted magnums. I also got a 30/30 barrel for it. I have converted mine to 30-31. The 30-31 is a 30-30 case loaded with 31 grains of 3031 powder under the Hornady 150 grain interlock which is their catalog number 3031.
