not sure if its a "good buy" or not, but that seems to be the asking price on gunbroker... I have seen a few of the 30-30 sell for 225-250ish locally and with the .222 being a little more rare (supposedly, I don't have any numbers) it is probably a fair price. Of course you always make a lower offer, right? - Unless you really wanted it for some reason, I would spend my $300 on a stevens 200 or savage 10/110. The 340's are nice little rifles though, I'm not trying to knock them. A friend of mine has a 340 in .222 with an old Weaver 6x on it, and it shoots really good (.75 inch groups at 100yd) as long as the barrel stays relatively cool. I have one (an 840 actually but close enough) that is missing a couple parts so I have never shot it, but it will be a winter project.
