My buddy wants to use his .30-30 for an antelope this year. I do all his handloading, but I've never loaded for a lever action before (it used to be my Marlin 336 and all I used were factory loads at the time). I'm thinking about doing something fun like a 125 grain Ballistic Tip to buy him a little flatter trajectory. I know we can get one under 200 yards, but in some cases 150 would be pushing it. I know they have pointed bullets, but I don't see any reason we couldn't make it a two shot rifle by just keeping one round in the magazine?
Dumb idea? Just go with the Leverrevolution flexi tip bullets if I want something pointy instead?
