    Default Winchester 30-30 mod 94 Trapper

    I have got this gun fifteen years ago and used it for the first time last season. I would ask you if you could tell me how far does it kill big game - a 250 lb boar.
    Ballistics of Ammo is given for a 24" barrel and mine is 16".

    If you choose good ammo the gun should be fine out to 150 yards on a hog, maybe 200. You will have to be able to place the bullet in the vitals though, so alot of the range will be dependant upon you.

    I have a lot of 150 grain Federal Classic rounds; around 600 pcs, I used them this season and got two running boars around 70 to 80 yards away, and missed two. They were over 120 yards away, so I intend to go for the Hornady 160 grain leverevolution for hunting and to use the Feds for training.. .

    I would not use the Leverevolution on hogs. You will experience jacket seperation on though animals like hogs. Save LeverEvolutions for thin skinned anuimals like deer. Use semi-jacketed soft points like your Federal classics, or good hard-cast lead for the hogs.

    Thanks, this suits me perfectly. Do I get the 150 meter range with my ammo, I had good results at 70 and 80 meters, I really don't see a reason to kill an animal at 150 if I get it properly. I shouldn't read so much to get doubtful.

    Your ammo can shoot that far, as long as YOU can shoot that far well.

    MHO is the trapper in .30-30 is a 100yd gun with any soft point jacketed bullet of 150gr to 170gr. Great rifle for walk and stalk when hunting pigs. You still have to know your rifle real well to make kill shots that far out.

    Does this mean it won't kill at 150 if I hit the pig in the vitals?
    At nearly 100 I've killed a couple.
