We got the deer up several hours after the shot though, bayed it up, and finished it off…..He made a really good shot but the gun and bullet choice did not preform well at all in that situation.


I had a couple runners with 150's back in the day (seemingly larger TN deer) and switched to 170's and that pretty much ended it. Swap up to a 200 in .35 Rem and that gives even a bit more oomph in my experience. You can't quantify it on paper just shoot a couple deer with each and decide for yourself or take my advice and save yourself the trouble.

Goatkiller you're wrong. The 30-30 makes 2 times the power (3 if you shoot powermax) as a .35 Rem. The deer I shot with the .35 laughed at me before throwing the bullet back. .

I heard that the SOCOM snipers were switching from the Barrett 50 bmg to the 30-30 with power maxes.

I know that can't be true because deer lack opposable thumbs necessary for throwing. grin

I’d have to put the figure from 40-200 animals per year depending on if its what I feel like using that particular year. This is across the United States on all kinda critters. Give Powermax a whirl, I won’t even ask for an apology.

Post Script: that figure above ^^^^ is with the 30-30, it could be up to 1000 animals with different calibers, bow, and spear, per year. I am a lucky man. I killed around thirty boar hogs this year using 410 Brenneke slugs from a 410, all one shot drops. This stuff is how I entertain myself.


I just saw this... I wanted to respond, but I realize now that I'm in the presence of greatness.

Truth be told, it knocked me out so I don't recall much about it. I guess it could have been a squirrel tossing a Powermax green pinecone.

Heck, y’all can’t get me flustered. I might not know much, but I know Powermax 150gr 30-30 is the best 30-30 round.

I’d love too but I’m stingy when it comes to Powermax 150gr 30-30

The 35 Rem is best suited with LeverE unless you handload.

I hope so too brother or I’ll have to bend it on a ranch hand bumper and throw it in the dumpster.
