Has anybody tried 30-30 55gr accelerator ammo for Yotes

Recommended Posts

I bought a box of these years ago but have never shot them. I worked at Burger Bros for years, but could never get any feedback on these. Remington makes them. I fiqured just about any hunter could get access to a 30-30. This could be a great gun to use if you want to try the sport of predator hunting. Here are some specs from a Remington ammo catalog. Muzzle Velocity 3400, 100yrd 2693, 200yrd 2085. Energy in ft-pds 100yrd 886, 200 yrd 531. Not a 223 but darn close. I'm not comparing bolt action, and AR-15 varmint rifles here. Just offering a cheap alternative. I want to here some feedback.

Thanks, Shirts

I knew remington had made 55 grainers for 30-06 but had never heard of it in 30-30....I say if you can zero it in out to 200 yards, you would be good to go. how does that ammo compare to the hornady Leverevolution?

I doubt they would be accurate enough for consistent hits. My cousin's father in law made him some out of 55 vmax's for his 30-06 and they were lucky to group 5-6in at 100yds. I have heard the same about the remington factory accelerators, and i think they are over 20 bucks a box. Just use the lightest solids and shoot them.

My father shot many a dog with these 55 grian bullets. I now have the gun and its ammo. I have not used it to date as I have a 223 and a 22-250 for yotes.

      Been a brutal hard water season for me as well, figured it was a continuation of my fall fishing luck.

      Thanks guys.  I checked out Modis for ice coverage and Navionics to help understand how things are laid out.  Knowing what areas certain fish prefer and those typical depths is a big plus.

      My wife and I are hoping to get up to Mille Lacs this Saturday and spend the night on the ice.  Does anyone have any last minute availability?  All the resorts I've contacted are booked. Thanks!

      Lots of nice fish!  Central Mn is cranking out some nice panfish.

      Great Idea Rick

      A plus is that the forecast is for a much nicer day Saturday.

      Thanks for your work guys! You were showin' some serious team spirit being out there today. I would have helped but I had a few appointments today I couldn't reschedule. I know I'm available Friday to do any last day scouting/fine tuning....

      Definitely a grind out prefishing cats today for the gathering.  Weather made it to tough but I Jeff  and his brother pushed through the elements to try and find a few active schools .   Locating the schools were tough took a pile of holes and the augers got a workout for sure,  but fortunately  we did find a couple active schools. Jeff and his brother found a few on one lake and I found a decent school on another lake. The good news was that both schools were cruising shallow flats in both locations and about the same depths. Great news as this is a good indication they are feeding on these flats.   Amazeingly both schools were found on a inside corner. Bingo looks like we have a pattern formed. We iced and marked  a fair number of cats in both locations so things are looking good for Saturday. Plus is we added a few for the fish fry already  Jeff I'll keep plugging away out there hopefully I can dial them in even more I have a hunch there are a few more close by where we ended.
