This is my 30-30 topper with a 16 1/2 inch bbl. A 165 TC gas checked at 1600 fps makes whitetails go dead down on the spot. If you don't reload, use Fed or Rem 150 factory loads. A Lee 113 soft lead over 6 grs. of Bullesye makes a fine small game/garden pest gun. It might weigh 5 1/5 lbs. Sight is a Bushnell TRS 25 red dot.
