    Now your talking!!! That antelope never knew what hit him when that 170 grain Core-Lokt took out his lungs and liver at 155 yards!! Never underestimate the 30-30 and that old gun is a tack driver even at 117 years old. I shot a 3'' 5 shot group at 150 yards resting on the 4wheeler!

    Have you by chance tried the Hornady Leverevolutions in that 30-30? I guess you really wouldn't need them with the open sights on that old gun since the only reason to use them would be for increased distance and then you'd probably want to have a scope on it. That, in turn, would probably ruin that old rascal that should probably be kept as is though!

    That is a beautiful gun. I wondered how you got that patina on the wood and metal. I didn't know it was 117 years old. That is really cool. Nice antelope, too. I think that might be the next type of gun I look for. That is pretty cool. 150 yards is a heck of a shot open sighted, too. I think.

    No I havent tried them. Couldnt have if I wanted too last year when I hunted with it, couldnt find a 30-30 to save my life and was lucky I had some Core-lokts in stock! I would have used the Core-Lokts anyways, was going old school on that hunt. And yes NO scope for that gun! Im confident with it to 200 yards with the peep sights and IMO thats far enough for a 30-30 anyways and a scope would kinda defeat the purpose of hunting with it and its a very clean original old gun ant there is NO WAY I would ever drill a hole in it to mount anything. If I want to shoot farther I have a 270!

    It has earned the patina. Its an original winchester 1894 made in 1896. The owner of the ranch I hunted on had alot of old guns even older then mine and I thought would be fun to hunt with my old gun on his place. Honestly I think that antelope I killed with it was the most well placed shot I ever made in my life!
