I used Fiocchi 115gr fmj and tried some 124gr Gold Dots. The magazines for the Sterling hold 34rnds,  but usually run best with 30-32 loaded in.

Instead of followers, they actually use rollers, making it easier to load and helping reliability.

Shooting was good, though I need to adjust the front sight and raise the POI and move it over right a few inches.
COM was rapid fire at 30ft and the head shots were 65ft.

 

Function was good with Fiocchi, but it doesn’t do Gold Dots…period. It would mash the hollowpoint and set back the bulet in the case from being slammed by the heavy bolt.

I was able to get through enough Gold Dots to put up a nice six shot group, though way low and left at 65ft.

The peep and post sights seem coarse, but they work well and recoil is pretty close to zero with only the heavy bolt bumping the sights off. Pretty much an easy shooter.

Mossberg 464 SPX – Tactical 30 30 Lever Action

This has to be one of the craziest, insane, and badass toys on the market right now. The Mossberg 464 SPX tactical lever action. The gun comes with a synthetic stock, with a M4 style butt stock, triple rail forearm that allows you to adjust the cheek rest, and a butt pad that reduces the recoil. The gun has fiber optics and comes in 30 30 carbine.  This makes for one hell of a zombie slayer!

Mossberg has been known to come out with some of the craziest ideas and this my friends is exactly that. Insane! I think Mossberg is going to sell their fair share of this rifle and including the ZMB to the receiver is going to add lots of new zombie slaying customers!

 

You can get your hands on this lever action for just around $425 which isn’t that bad!
