Accuracy up to 700 Yards-Does the .32-40 Marlin repeater, using the .32-40 Marlin High Power cartridge loaded with 24.5 grains of Lightning smokeless powder and a 165-grain bullet shoot as accurately at all ranges up to 700 yards as the .30-30 Marlin with 23 grains Lightning powder and a 160 grain bullet?
The .32-40 High Power and the .30-30 have just about the same accuracy up to 700 yards. At greater ranges the .30-30, retaining its springing motion longer on account of the quicker twist of the rifling, will keep point-on better than the .32-40, and therefore show greater accuracy at these extreme ranges.
