30-30 is a great little gun. Taken more deer in N. America than any other caliber. But what are you wanting it for? Hunting, Distance, EZ reloading etc? With the factory iron sights, I never take a shot over 75 yards with my Win'94. But when I do shoot, the Sierra 125gr.HP drops them every time. Reloading for the 30-30 is easy with a variety of recipes available.
My "obsolete" cartridge is a Ruger in .350 Remington Mag. Leopold 3-9x40. 225gr. Nos. partition..good out to 300 yards an rated for every big game animal on earth except elephant. The round has been lost to history for the most part but reloading is still possible and the little rifle packs a Serious Wallop!!

I agree, start with the 10/22. A great little 22...

You can always get something bigger later, but the

10/22 is a great beginning.
