What if any are your best choices, mainly used for Whitetails.
Most of my rifles are 7mm. I was leaning towards a 7-30 Waters.
But let me know your opinions , Please!
TIA

What's the best 7mm in a 10 or 12" bar

i'd be happy with either probably but the 7-30 is not bad in 10" either. check out the article at handgunhunt.com about 10" 7-30.

In a 10" I'd prefer the 7 TCU. You'll get virtually the same velocity from either in the 10" barrel but the TCU uses a good bit less powder to get you there. By the time you reach a 14" barrel the 7-30 clearly has a worth while edge in velocity over the TCU.

7mm TCU

Go with the 7mm TCU. I love the 7-30Waters, but you would just be wasting powder in a 10". :grin:

And if you're using an Encore, take a look at the 7BR. It does very well in short tubes.
