Ammo and 2 world's meeting

#1 Post by Scrumbag » Fri Dec 14, 2018 12:25 pm

Hello gents

These were for sale in a local auction, Kynoch 30-30 Ammo

Kynoch, who of course made ammo for the big bores of dangerous game hunting, also made the "American Classic"

Thought some might find that interesting.

I never knew that, either. Well, today has not been wasted. I learned something.

Thanks for taking the time to post that.
I've seen a lot of Kynoch ammo over the years...mostly overseas.
I doubt most folks would recognize ammo for their good old "thirty-thirty" if you offered 7.62 x 51R to them..!!

Those rounds rekindle an old flame in me! I once saw a chap with a 30wcf sxs double! It was lite and petite.

I have since longed for a lite barreled break action single shot in 30wcf but they don't exist over here.

I won't bother now but that little double will always have a special place in my heart!

I've shot a lot of 303 Brit mil surp ammo, much of it made by Kynoch. Seen many other cartridges made by them ... except the 30-30.
That is one box of ammo I'd love to add to my collection.

That is interesting. I wonder how the ballistics compare with American ammo.

The box has "metal covered soft nosed bullet" on it. Maybe it's my eyes but the loaded cartridges look like cast bullets to me. Reloads?---6

Nath, the first Handi Rifle I bought was a .30-30 that I still have. Though Handi rifles are no longer made you might be able to find a Henry single shot.

Yea....your right Ray....I knew I had some of that Kynoch......just checked....three boxes...two are still factory sealed.....the one that was open showed the jacket to be similar to the old cupro-nickel from our early jacketed ammo.---6

Kynoch was the successful commercial successor to Lester's Ammo -- which was started by an older but not-so-smart brother, who died young in Africa........ :wink:
