Re: 1987 Winchester XTR, 30-30

Should be s great rifle. I have ones made in 85 and 89. Mine shoot best with Federal 170s. The 85 is a plain rifle that looks like yours with a 24" barrel.

Gdu, I beg to differ. Depends on whether the powder burns completely in the case. Likely will burn in any length .357 rifle barrel.
