  • 30-30 fn projectiles loaded in a .308!

    I got told a great pig load is to load 30-30 FN projectiles into .308 rounds!
    Has anybody tried this?
    Cheers Mat.

    Yes mate I have used 130g Speer FPs and a variety of 150g FPs as well. Usually I kept them around 2700fps or less and they worked real well on the pigs.

      Yes they do.
      But the pointed (spitzer) bullets work well also. There is no advantage in the FP only disadvantage in the way of poor trajectory. If you get them at a good price go for it.

    We used to use the FN 3030 in a 30-06, quite explosive expansion when they hit, due to being a hell of a lot faster than they were designed to expand at.

      Bloody effective out to about 150, from then on the trajectory isn't the best...

      Our nickname for them was "the flying sledgehammers".

      I nailed a Buff with them in the NT, as there was no time to swap ammo, but was not the most effective.....
