Any of you hunt with a Savage O/U 3030-12 ga.?

Nope...

Wish I had a Savage 24 though...

Friend had one when we were kids....22 Hornet over/.410 under...Lots of 'stuff' fell to that combo...

Always wanted the .30-30/12...I still watch them on gunbroker.com...Out of my price range these days though...

I am VERY partial to the Savage/Springfield/Stevens family...

My wife's groundhog getter is a Savage 110. 22-250
By my 52nd. B'day I believe I'll own one of them Savage O/U units. Someone once told me that the recievers were milled by Valmet. Don't know about that, but it would'nt hurt my feelings none if it were true.

I have 'been told' that under heavy fire the zero tends to wander...But not to worry, as it wanders back after the barrels cool...

;-)

my grampa swore by his single-shot savage - it had replacable 3030 & 16 gauge barrels and he'd shot most everything with it. it's a tack-driver! :)

For no other reason than lack of interest in the others, I have my Uncle Med's H&R 20 ga.
It has a case hardened receiver, and a resonable barrel. He bought it at a hardware for $2.00 sometime in the early twenties. I can't tell you the game it's got. I'm the third owner. Sabots work good with it up to 100 yards. It has been hard on turkeys too.

After some time behind a windfall this season, I came to the idea that I'd like to hunt with a 3030 - 12 gauge. I like the utility of it. I like those .30 Noslers, and I'd enjoy the range the 12 offers.
