Got a question for you guys.


Does anyone regularly shoot a Blackhawk in 30 carbine?  I love shooting my WWII vintage carbine and love the idea about having a revolver (I'm a single action fan) in the  same cartridge.  


I have a Blackhawk in 357 and am debating getting a Henry carbine in 357 as an alternative.


I've read up on the Blackhawk in 30 carbine and issues about fouling, difficulty loading after a while due to build up were noted.  


I'm not a prepper, but I have prepper tendencies, and this idea just appeals to me.

Yes buy both you cant go wrong.

If you use quailty ammo that should cut on the fouling.

Thx.  30 carbine ammo and 38 special are not to different in price, so both sounds good to me!
