Good reply , I in all honesty , didnt think about that . The 7.62×39 is easy enough to get here . A lot of it around right now , both with the bulk Russian imports and most American manufacturers now make their own 7.62×39 , but the price is greatly higher . Oddly enough , sometimes the 30-30 is hard to get , depending on what part of the country your in . I live in the Southwest and 30-30 is not a very popular rifle cal . , but AR’s and AK’s are very popular , So stores dont carry much 30-30 , if at all . Midwest is a different story .
