Bullets?

CT stands for "count", it simply means the quanity.As far as bullets, The 150 grain will probably do you the best.this bullet will offer the flattest trajectory, and that is what will determine maximum range.

I agree that 150 is best, but don't throw out your 170's especially when you're having a tough time getting bullets as it is. They'll work, but 150's will work better.

Not a problem at all. Once upon a time someone did the same for me. I'm just returning the favour.

Bullets?

Would swap meats or gun shows have cheaper ammo? Cause here in Bakerfield we have Gun Shows about every 3 to 6 months!So I could stalk up there and then use it for the rrange or hunting later on.so....Help

I don't know - but it couldn't hurt to check it out. In Canada they wouldn't (or highly unlikely that they would) due to our laws. If nothing else you get out mixing and mingling with other shooters/hunters and experts.

On a related topic. I think it's great that you're getting into hunting and shooting and I definitely encourage you to do so. The swap meet/gun show is an excellent place fo ryou to be, even if you don't find an answer to your ammunition problem. Most of all from there you can hopefully find a good hunting club where you can hang out with and learn from more experienced hunters.

I fully understand your impatience - I'm in a bit of a similar situation myself waiting for my Firearms license so I can buy a rifle (I gave mine to my brother when I left home and let my old license expire - big mistake).

Hunting is a great sport but it does have the potential to be dangerous, and even deadly. Usually these tragedies are the result of inexperienced or careless people. The fact that you're putting some research and thought into this process tells me you're probably not careless.

Join a hunting club especially one that has a young hunters chapter - I'm positive that through them you'll not only solve a lot of your immediate problems, but you'll become a better, safer and more succesful hunter.

Thanks for the advise but I always thought hunter clubs were for retired old guys that had nothing else to do but sit around telling "Once upon a time" stories about there hunts. Most likly im wrong by what you said so ill look into it. Could maybe tell me some of the activities that they do. Cause I dont want to embarres the club, if you know what I mean! Wink Thanks for the advise!(I go back to school tommorow)

LOL, Saskie has a good point. Another good organization to join while you're at it is the NRA. Some of the folks on this forum (myself included) no doubt have a few burrs under their saddles when it comes to erosion of gun rights. As a minor, I'm sure you've noted how yours are just about gone. If you enjoy that .30-30, help make sure you get to keep it.
