I think the 30/30 is an excellent ammo. It has served me well as a superior selection.

There is the 5.56 that lacks the firing power of the 30/30.

I have a few Winchester Model 94 in 30/30:

I also have a Marlin 336C w/scope in .35 Remington (great rifle):

My first 30-30 was a western auto
Store brand of a Marlin 30as.
Was a 4th owner of this old sea rifle.
The rifling produced patterns, at 25 yds youd be hard put to hit a coffee can with one of the five rounds in tge mag.
My second was a parts rifle a winchester model 64, this rifle looked like it was drug behind a basket sled for a mile every couple seasons. Finish was gone, surfaces pitted.
Rifling sharp enuf to cut your finger on.
From its origins as a box of parts it resurrected into a accurate shooter.
The most accurate 30-30 Id encounterd to date.
Id partwd with it when on hard times and for years after always wanted another with the same style fit and feel.
So I picked up a Marlin 336C and had close but not exactly.
#1 thing I noticed was was no where near the winchester 64 in accuracy.
It had the fit and a no part of the feel.
It was a rough thumbnail sketch of a model 64.

I do have another Winchester that I got in an Estate sale with 2 other guns. Sold the other two to pay for the Winny (top one, 1975, never fired with box):

This is my Winchester 74 .22 that dates to 1942. It was my Dad's first rifle. It still works great.

I do own two Henry rifles. I got this Henry H001 .22LR from a guy that was rebuilding a barn. He didn't shoot it much, I have fired it many times.

I got this Henry Big Boy .357 Mag (w/ box) from a guy that just didn't like it!? It was four ago. He threw in some ammo. I was looking at the local trading post, and it goes for big money today. Go figure.
