The 100-year-old (plus) .30-30 Winchester needs no introductions. The cartridge has been getting the job done since 1895, mostly in handy, fast-handling carbine lever rifles. In this series, we will investigate .30-30 handloads for a Thompson/Center Contender G1 handgun; one of the first rounds offered by Thompson/Center (T/C) in its revolutionary single-shot pistol that was introduced in 1965. Noting that previous .30-30 T/C data on this website covers big-game bullets from 130 to 200 grains, I thought that filling the light bullet gap would prove appropriate. This also happens to mesh with my varmint shooting proclivities.
