I've read that the ".30 Remington" was first known as the ".30-30 Remington" and the second "30" was quickly dropped to prevent confusion with the .30-30 Winchester.

Considering the hassle I've had searching for ".30 Remington" ammunition and getting hits on ".30 Remington AR", I can believe that story...

A fellow club member gave me some brass that he thought might be .30 Remington.
Some were marked 30 and were made by Remington. Turns out they are 30-40 Krag, formerly known as 30 US.
