Torn..?? 7mmTCU or 7-30 waters (contender)
I'm not having much luck finding a 7mmTCU carbine barrel. 23"...
I've had a super 14 7TCU for many years.
Really like it. Stingy on powder .. great performance.
But on the other hand.. there's the 7-30 waters.
I have a 23" 30-30 barrel..
Is it true ? Those of you that have a 7-30 waters.
Great performance and less recoil than the 30-30?
I really like the 7tcu in a carbine barrel. Yes the 7/30 is a great round too. But with the right bullets the tcu will do the job at less coast or recoil.
Thanks, ... 😁
Don't have a contender, but do own a 94 Winchester in 7-30 Waters. Good whitetail round. Don't think recoil is much of a factor. I'll get some pushback for this, but am convinced that you're better off with a rimmed case in the tip-up guns. I'd go with the 7-30.
Well... couldn't find a 7mmTCU carbine barrel.
But Ed's contenders had a 7-30 Waters..23" bull.
So I bought it.
Hopefully I'll like it.
(I've made mistakes before)
Well..we shall see..
I went ahead and bought a 7-30 barrel from Ed's contenders..
(By the way, he's a great guy. I've delt with him for several years.excellent service)
Crazy as this seems..
I already have a carbine barrel in 30-30 a 23" bull.
Just wants to kick a tad more than I like.
Hopefully, the Waters with give a slight performance increase. And maybe? Less recoil.
You won't ever regret owning a barrel in 7-30 Waters.
Fabulous performance from that round.
You've done well, Sir!
I certainly hope so.
I love the 7mmTCU..
But ?.....I have to agree, the rimmed case is slightly better in a contender.
Digging up some of my old reloading books.
The waters should offer less recoil, and better ballistic than the 30-30.
As others have said.. the 7mm has some good bullets to select from.
I have often thought?
When I was shooting my old 30 Herrett..
Wish this was a 7mm in a Carbine barrel..
Pretty sure someone has made something like that...be one super efficient carbine, I'd say.
Well.. doggone it..
They DO .. make it.
It's called the 7mm international rimmed..
Now that totally intrigues me.
Maybe someday I can afford to call up MGM and have a 23" bull carbine made.
But..who knows?might be perfectly happy with the 7-30 Waters.
