The web address that Whiskey posted does give you the main match rifle information but if you scroll down a couple pages you'll find the section on side matches and a description of the rifles which can be used for long range.

A lever action Winchester 94 in 30-30 is perfectly legal for long distance. You can not use in main match due to steel targets and their closeness. The bullets must be lead. In 1895, the Winchester 1894 first came out in .30-30. It is a cowboy cartridge and rifle, just not for main match due to the targets.
