New to forum and Henry

Postby mtswampfox » Tue Feb 12, 2019 4:20 pm

Thanks all
New to Henry but not to 30-30 and reloading for them. Moms old Marlin will eat just about anything fed to it. This Henry tho is quite picky. Thinking it has a very tight chamber that is sensitive to neck size and oal. Going to really scrub the chamber and throat tomorrow and maybe pick up some factory rounds. Anyone else have problems reloading for this cartridge???

No experience with the 30-30, but many here love theirs. You will no doubt get some good ideas.

Welcome from Nebraska! My favorite is the 357. I shoot the steel carbine.

Remember, it's not how many guns you have. It's how many bullets you have.

Welcome to the forum from KC! Glad you've joined us. I haven't started reloading for 30-30 yet, but it's next on my list. Here's a pretty extensive thread on the topic. MisterEd is very experienced in this caliber...

Welcome to the forum from Wickiup junction. Oregon.
No problems reloading 30-30 but no experience with it in a Henry - all my 30-30s are Winchester!

I have the Henry .30-30 H009 in Brass. Love it! Shoots factory .30-30 ammo just fine. But I like Federal Power Shok and Fusion the best.
