Alright, my buddy and I took the families out for a day of fun yesterday and went into the desert for some shooting fun. 5 hours later as were finnishing up up he says take a couple shots with the 30-30 and I'll spot ya'. Good idea. Anyways I wasn't paying close enough attention and since I don't own a 30-30 I am not familiar with the ammo. I FIRED A .38 SPECIAL IN A 30-30! Bullet got stuck 2/3 of the way up the barrel and it came free easy enough but now I own a 30-30 that is scrap metal (Screw somethin up you make it right). Question, is it worth it to even take it in to have a gunsmith look at? Details- 79'-80' Winchester 94 .38 was soft lead copper jacket. .38 came out of barrel pretty easy, considering.
