I hunt with a .30-30 a whole lot and shoot it wayyyyy more than most people. I put at least a box through it a year and I'm always shooting different stuff out of it because the gun is very tolerant of different loads and shoots everything well. I don't bring that gun when I think I might shoot over 100 yards if I can help it.
I've put about 5 boxes through mine just this year so far. It goes to the range even if I think I'm just going to shoot pistols.
Hornady squishy tips are not good bullets. I've yet to see one do what it was supposed to do in
I have had the opposite experience as well as a guy that is a 45-70 aficionado on another board.
1) Most people shouldn't be taking 200 yard shots with any caliber, much less one that lobs bullets rather than sends them on a rope.
I am very much aware that it's a sad state of affairs that a 200 yard shot is considered that difficult for the average person. 300yds with iron sights is in no way either difficult yet I know plenty who have no hope of hitting a barn at that range.
2) Most factory loads are pop gun loads and don't bring much with them past 100 yards.
I addressed that issue with hand loads.
3) (looking for trajectory charts)
Looking now is a bit late and won't tell you much unless you have your own charts to compare data.
