I don't doubt you for a second. I harvested a doe at 120 yards with a Marlin 30/30 last year. She fell in place with almost no meat damage. The 30/30 is a terrific round, but then again I've never met a round I didn't like. Well, that's not true. My shoulder hates the 300 win mag and my blinking eyes tend to agree.

We shot deer regularly at over 220 up to 240 yards with a .30-30. Penetration was complete and one shot was an angled chest shot.

Coming in late on this, but regarding the .30-30's accuracy...

About 20 years ago I watched a guy at my club in Pennsylvania beat the living hell out of the 500 yard gong with a Remington 788 .30-30.

can't go wrong with a 30-30

I wish I had my witnesses here for this.

We had spent all day at the range, sighting in our rifles whe, i finally decided to break out the 336. With 170 grain silvertips we nailed a pie pan at 200 yds w 2.5" groupings. I couldn't believe it neither could the guys at the range.

all I have on it is a Tasco 4x28 with "pop-up" rings. To this day whenever I go out that gun goes with me, I almost feel bad when I go deer hunting and take my 30-06 or .243.

That is the most reliable gun in my case....I will never part ways with it.
