  1. A 30-30 is a good choice but ive been told that its a 307 diameter bullet therefore you can still use 308 diameter ammo but it will cause excess leading. Dont know if its true but might be something to look in to.

  2. Modern Survival

    Dan,

    The 30-30 fires .308 diameter bullets like most 30 caliber weapons. There is a round called the 307 Winchester based on a rimmed version of the .308 Winchester case.

    Internally, the .307 has thicker case walls than the .308. It is a fine cartridge and brings .300 Savage performance to rifles with a tubular magazine like the Winchester 94 and Marlin 336. However, even the 307 Win actually uses .308 caliber bullets but it is probably the source of the concern you brought up.
