.30-30 Ammo History
.30-30 ammo was the United States’ first small-bore sporting cartridge designed for smokeless powder in 1895 and was originally meant for the Winchester 1894 lever-action rifle. The added – “.30” on the end stands for the standard load of 30 grains (1.9 grams) of early smokeless powder.
The original .30-30 cartridge was manufactured by Winchester Repeating Arms and Union Metallic Cartridge Company with a 160-gram jacketed-lead bullet. A year later, it was offered with a 170-gram bullet. Both .30-30 ammo sizes are popular for lever-action rifles like the Savage Model 99 and the Marlin Model 336.
