Default Winchester model 94AE

Iíve been looking for a Winchester 94AE in 307 Winchester for the last six months now with no success. I was wondering what you all thought about the idea of re-chambering and/or re-barreling a model 94 from 30-30 to .307, is justifiable or even feasible? I want a tubular magazine lever action with more range than the 30-30.

Yes! It is possible to rechamber the 94 for the 307Win round. You will have to use a premium bullet like a Nosler XFN. I don't know if they are available in factory loaded ammo. Maybe somebody else here would. Most flat nose bullets are designed for 30-30 impact velocities which are much lower than the 307. Factory ammo will probably be hard to find so you may be forced to load your own. Good luck with it though. I might even look into that myself.

By the way, all this info came from Shooting Times (Nov. 2000). And my wife says I never use these back issues.:-) If you want to read it yourself, Check out www.galleryofguns.com. There is a link there for Shooting Times. The article("20 Great Loads for 10 Top Rifle Rounds&quot Should be available in their archives.

I don't know where the premium bullet stuff came in but my 307 shoots Hornady and Sierra 130,150 and 170 gr flat points extremely well. Ballistally it's a dead ringer for a 300 Savage. If your serious about this project there are still factory loads available but it'll be costly, I suggest you get a good supply of brass and handload I personally like the 170 gr bullets for all around hunting. The 307 is a bit of a rarity seeing as how Winchester 94 AE is the only gun chambered for it. I would not sell my for anything.
