    The big blunt nose of a 170gr 30-30 bullet has a good bit of stompum.
    The real advantage with the '94 is that it points like your finger and bullets just magically get to where you were looking.

    I agree that within its limits the 30-30 is a good cartridge. It works.
    The only deer I've ever clean missed was with a '94... wasn't no magic that day. I was young and probably excited. The gun still lives and works but I never felt the same about it. It lives with my very elderly uncle now.

    Lots of practice...know the gun and how it behaves like you know your own friends.

    Lever actions made before 1898 aren't considered to be antiques anyway.

    "...Valued about the same as a pre '64 model 94 in the same condition..." Not a pre 64. No Commemoratives made until 1964.
    "...weren't any brass/brass-plated receivers prior to..." Yellow Boy but it's an 1866. No brass 1894's at all, except Commemoratives.

    Most collectables are worth more if they are new and unfired. It's your gun and you do what you wish with it but you might want to reconcile yourself to a value decrease if you actually use it.

    While I am being a wet blanket to the world, most collectables are worth more with all the original packaging etc.

    As I said, your rifle, your decision.

    Thanks for your concern. I take no offense.

    I'm a shooter. I would not consider getting a gun just for show.


    It is not like I paid a lot for it. It is my most expensive rifle but I've paid more for my Glock 21.
