    I have tried to purchase 30-30 bullets for reloading a lever action rifle. Looking for RN 150 or 170 grain. I have exhausted all internet searches. Any help out there?

    Just looking for 150 t0 170 grain soft point RN like factory loads used by Federal, Winchester or Remmington's core lock. No FMJ, flat points or hollow points. Would prefer Hornady's FTX 160 grain "Leverevolution" but can find them anywhere.

    In a pinch you can substitute 'standard' SP bullets BUT they turn your 30-30 into a single shot as they will be too long to run through the action. Even if they could run through it would be unsafe due to the possibility of recoil detonation. The up side is you wont go through ammo so fast and SP bullets really change they dynamic of the 30-30 round. 150 gr. SP bullets really flatten the trajectory along with a noticeable increase in accuracy. I am using up some SP bullets in just this manner in my 30-30.

    I could be wrong but I think this Texan suggested we go to a certain store in PA for .22lr as they always have it in stock.. no delivery though.

    Powdervalleyinc.com lists both the Hornady 150 gr RN and the 160 gr FTX in stock. They are one of the best online vendors.
