7x30 Waters


Registered Users do not see the above ad.


I have looked through the RL manuals left after the divorce and none of them address the 7x30 Waters. It was a fairly new conversion when I stepped back from reloading. As I recollect it was a neck-down and a trim followed by a fireform. This is a cart. that I am bound and determined to make/load/shoot so I will find some hard copy sometime in the future but for now if someone would help me refresh my memory on the full process for this round I would really appreciate. Thanks ahead of time. Jeff

First its not a wildcat as new ammo can still be purchased from Federal....albeit very limited in bullet selection. Very simple process to make up your own brass from 30-30 or .375 Win.
new 30-30 brass run it thru a 7-30 waters sizing die just enough to get the case to chamber.....check in very small increments as you are making a small headspace shoulder to fireform from.
Work up some starting loads for fire forming using any of the heavier bullets in 7mm loaded out to the rifling.
Shoot 'em up..........normally these are quite accurate so it is not wasting anything.
Once you have shot them they will take on the chamber dimensions and you will probably not even have to trim them.
There is currently quite a bit of loading info. both in the newer manuals and free off the internet........lots of TC shooters have them and they are quite effective for deer sized game out past 150 yds. if you can shoot. I have used mine to shoot deer and antelope.

Sorry skb; No intent to offend by calling this a wildcat. When I first heard about it, it was very much a wildcat. I was out of the sport for a period of years, thus the ignorance. I've decided to form my brass form 38-55 brass for the reason of pushing the shoulder back instead of fireforming it forward. I realize that it will still need to be frfrmd. I also think that I know that I'll run a higher risk of wrinkling(sp) the neck and will take due precaution (case rotation during the form) to aleviate this. I am here to learn, so anything you want to share will be deeply appreciated. Thanks again Jeff Schuler
