How many rounds can a 1975 Winchester Model 94 .30-.30 hold? I just bought it today for $325. Is that a fair price? It is in average condition.

I really, really, would like to see (not first hand, maybe a video) of what happens when a tube mag is filled with very pointy rounds...

Can you still use round nose bullets in this particular rifle safely?

Round nosed would PROBABLY be safe- but- in the words of Dirty Harry-

"You have to ask yourself- Do I feel lucky? Well.....Do ya?"

Stick with the flat tips or the plastic tipped Leverloution ammo, and that is one question you will never have to ask. Being wrong would be painful. Very painful.

Like these. The flat nose spans the whole primer of the cartridge in front. Prevents detonating the next cartridge at recoil.

my M94 holds six rounds, kind of varies by barrel length, as they had several different barrel lengths ans magazine tube lengths over the years.

$325 is a good price if it's in decent shape, especially beings it was made in 1975. i gave $270 for mine in near mint condition, made in the mid 1990's.

Mine holds 7 shells, according to the serial number it was make sometime during ww2, they apparently didn't keep good tabs on them in those years with the war going on so the specific year is a crapshoot according to the Winchester Serial number guide.
