Deer down!! First shot at a deer was 50 yards and she dropped like a rock! If I wasnít hooked already I certainly am now!! She was a huge doe. Then shortly thereafter had a nice young 8 point come in. He just didnít measure up on the home place or I would have tried a ďdaily doubleĒ!! Good times.

Tried and true! Not in a 7-30, but in it's twin sister 7mm/30-30AI.

I try for broad side chest shots thru the lungs but have no issues when striking the shoulders other than a lot of meat damage as with any other high powered round.
