7-30 Waters Brass from .375 brass

I have some of this brass and it seems to work well. I got 50 pcs on ebay and have only shot it twice. He guarantees his brass.

I don't consider $25 for 50 to be a good price. That's VERY high. You can get new FC 7-30 headstamped nickle brass for that and E. A. Brown an advertiser and supporter of this site sells formed brass for half that price.

Folks seem to want to make a big deal of it being formed from .375 Win. as opposed to .30-30 brass. I've seen no real difference in the performance of it. The .30-30 brass is made for use in applications just as high in pressure as you can safely push it in the Contender. Making an assumption you can use .375 brass and run pressures higher is asking for trouble and sooner or later you'll find it.

Perfect timing for this topic. Since I already load 30-30 cartridges. I would prefer to use the brass which is already headstamped 7 X 30. Where can this be purchased?

I bought mine from Midsouth a few years ago. Midway USA has also carried them for years. I think Federal has stopped selling them but some may still be in stock. Check those two and any other such mail order outfits that cater to reloaders and you should find some. If not e-mail me and I'll see if I can't round up a source for you.
