I still say start with the right round, buy a box of factory 7x30 waters ammo and that will show you if you have a head space problem or not, I have never heard of a head space problem with a contender barrel. stick a round in the chamber then take a steel ruler on edge across the barrel that will tell you if there is a lot of head space. I still say your problem is with the resized brass not the barrel but as always I could be wrong. We all have our opinion and we are trying to help on a problem with a screen and keyboard, any way good luck. At one time I owned 18 contender hand guns and 6 rifles and I never had a problem with any of them going bang when I pulled the trigger, but I never used resized brass only factory brass.
