Bill, my old 336SC will put three shots into 1 1/4" or better at 100 yards regularly, with Winchester 150 PowerPoints, which is more than good enough for any deer within 200 yards. I suspect that M94 of yours will do as well (or, it would, with a scope like my Marlin). Heck, if el cheapo factory ammo will do that, there's no need whatsoever for a feller to bother loading it for deer hunting. In fact, the last time I took my Marlin out (last week), I shot two groups that were under that 1 1/4" mark @100 yards.Could a reloader use 30-30 brass or would that be stretching things to far?
..30-30 brass can be resized up to the dimensions required for the 32 Win Spl but NOT the other way around. I doubt I will venture into reloading for this rifle like I do for other rifles I shoot more frequently. I'll just buy 4 or 5 factory boxes and say that's good
If store-bought ammo will do that, no need to handload, especially if you're shooting iron sights(unless you just want to).
