    The 7/30 Waters is a great round for deer size game.

    The 120gr flat nose factory ammo is very good out to
    250 or 300yrds and the Nosler blistic tip on out to 500
    or 600yrds.

    This is a fun gun.

    Look under the SP section and you sholuld be able to find out where people had furniture made for the T/C's.

    hunlee,

    Congratulations on your 7x30 Waters project.
    T/C Contenders are a lot of fun, pretty accurate too.
    I have the 7x30 Waters Super 14 barrel and a SSK 6.5 JDJ barrel for mine.
    I added Ol Georgia Jim wood which I finished. They also have a hanger system for the forend that I'm sure will help you out.
    Pictured below is my T/C Contender with the 6.5 JDJ barrel.

    Really appreciate offer from redbone but intention of a long ranger for hunlee with rifle barrel cut to 17 inch or 18 inch.XP tell hunlee that long barrel is better for long range shooting over shorter.XP tell that one can expect 45fps per inch of barrel length so hunlee deside just to go through with original plan.Love the 14 incher barrel though as hunlee own 14inch 223 and 14 inch 375 Windchester.If hunlee deside to cahnge mind at last minute redbone will be first to know so trade can take place.thank again
