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?
Thanks

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.

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.
