.28-30-120 Stevens

.28-30-120 Stevens
Warning! Notes: General Comments - Remington made the first factory loads for the 28-30, and these used the 120-grain bullet and 30 grains of Fg blackpowder. By 1918, it was no longer listed in the Remington catalog. Some match shooters who used the 28-30 considered it superior to the 32-40 out to 300 yards. It makes a good 150-yard small game or varmint cartridge. Lyman No. 285222 or 285228 is the proper cast bullet, but one can use any standard cast 7mm bullet up to 180 grains weight. Do not use jacketed bullets in the old blackpowder barrels as they will wear the bore excessively and the fine accuracy may be destroyed within a few hundred rounds. Gas-checked bullets are OK.
