The 30-30 Winchester Cartridge, originally known as the .30 WCF first appeared on the market in 1895 in Winchester's Catalog. The cartridge was originally chambered in the Winchester Model 1894 Lever Action. The modern use of the name of this cartridge is attributed to Marlin when it chambered its Model 1893 in the cartridge and the name stuck and has been this ever since. The 30-30 while considered to be a "entry class" of hunting firearm, has proven to be very effective on deer and black bear. The cartridge however should be limited to 200 yards except when chambered with ballistic tipped ammunition. The Winchester 30-30 has been used on deer, black bear, moose, caribou as well as pronghorn. This is a cartridge with light recoil, conventionally loaded with flat point or round point bullets for use in tubular magazines. Even though this cartridge was introduced in 1895 it remains popular today.
