First deer with my 30 gnr

It took a couple seasons by I finally got a deer with my 30 gnr. 175 yard shot which is exactly what I got it for, long rang handgun hunting. Deer only went about 30 yards and dropped right in front of me. Great round and extremely accurate. Thanks Gary for making such a great round.

Good job, Dave.

The 30 GNR and 7 GNR are two of the most popular GNR

cartridges and they end up in the top 10 every year. Sometimes top 5. They both are sorta the "perfect" deer size game hunting cartridge going. Short range or long range they just work.

We set Roman up with a G2 in .30 GNR

It just made sense for a young man to use as his first real hunting handgun. It is compact, Wal-mart .30-30 ammo is useful in a pinch, and it's a solid platform. We loaded up Nosler Ballistic tips, 150 gr. at 2400 fps. Mild shooting and .300 Savage rifle performance from a handgun. I got him a Burris 2x-7X scope in DDT mounts and Pachmayr furniture with a sling set up. It's perfect for 95% of his future shooting and hunting. Folks have killed Elk with much less!

He took a nice ram at HHC and it now is mounted in his room. A good memory for us both.


Cool! I took an aoudad at HHC with mine.
