Okay who has one? Big Grin Bobby's thread in the Hog section has me thinking about one of these to reload spitzer bullets in just for something different. Even the .30-40 Krag in the #1 would be interesting Cool

I have a Chapius double in 30/30 and it has a matched set in 22 Hornet. Plenty fun.

Rather pretty.

But got a No.1 7.62x39 instead. Brass seems to be more robust. Can be handloaded for enhanced performance.

So, if you want to enhance the performance then you didn't want a 30-30 level cartridge in the first place.

7.62x39 is another cheap plinker Cool I got one in the Ruger American Ranch Rifle and it is actually quite accurate. $4.99/20 makes it nice to feed and the nephews can shoot it as long as they want without me worrying about dents and dings in fine wood dancing

How's that for practicality! Handloaded in my No.1: 150gr at 2450 fps muzzle speed with decent accuracy. Similar to .30-30 ballistics.

They make them in 30-30 I had one. It didn’t shoot very well. Prophet River Firearms was selling them.

Big Bore Fan is right, they did make a run of them in 1986 and 1987. Just how many of them Ruger made is not know. According to J D Clayton in his book Ruger No.1, the 30-30 was offered in a 1-S. Non-catalogued means they made them for a distributor.

Chambered mine in 303 Epps in a 30 cal. barrel (Douglas, 12 twist). Just like a 30/06 but more work and less common.
The 30/30 in a No.1 can be loaded HOT! 2700 with 150's is no problem. Regards, Bill

A typical, buy a 30-30 or 30-40 and try to get 30-06 velocity, the mindset of a true wildcatter.. jumping

A 30-30 in a single shot rifle will shoot amply-flat and provide more than 1,000 ft./lbs of energy at 300 yards. I've killed hundreds of head of game with cartridges in this power class and never felt undergunned. He never mentioned enhancing or feeling the need to hotrod the cartridge, as Ray spoke of, but simply made note of bullets better suited to its usage since there is no need to handicap the single shot rifle with blunt projectiles. Some of the newer bullets intended for the Blackout are quite wicked at 30-30 speeds. To boot, the time-tested 125 grain Ballistic Tips and Accubonds work wonderfully at 2600 fps from my 24" barrel. Smiler
















Sub-1700 fps impact:

The 2 below were actually fired from my .300 Savage Contender and recovered from large hogs. I only run them a bit over 100 fps faster than my 30-30 loads. Their effectiveness can't be denied.

What a great thread! Thanks for enhancing it Bobby.
Ray, Roger Renner was responsible for building some of the most beautiful underhammer muzzle-loading heavy rifles some years back. He is a master.

Id love a #1-A in 25-35 Win., be a great deer and hog gun, and I've killed more than a few elk with one, get close and shoot straight and it works everytime, be ready to pass on huge bulls at 200 yards or beyond..you allways see them when undergunned.. rotflmo

Ray, I just picked up a nice No 3 30-40 and think with a slimmed and cut down stock it should make a great first deer rifle for grandkids.

And old men too !


Anyone who claims the 30-06 is ineffective has either not tried one, or is unwittingly commenting on their own marksmanship

Very nice Phil! I have been on the lookout for a #1 or #3 in .30-40 ever since I got my first Krag. Apparently Ruger did a very limited run of the #1 for Cabelas to sell in their stores. I'd love to have one of those.

Phil,
I picked up a nice old Springfield 30-40 Krag, excellent bore, the rest is rougher than a cob, but the wood is solid..Its a carbine modification, by Springfield..ordered dies, brass and something else..All I have to do is dump a bundle of those long 220 gr. Corelokts in that tub on the side and shoot whatever gets in my way!!! Nostalgia from and early deer as a kid when I shot a great buck at 150 yards with one just like this one, it puts them down, so I shot an elk and got the same results..Im sure I'll sell it downt the road but for now is my new baby... tu2
