7-30 Waters
 
 

In 1977, Ken Waters, technical editor of Handloader and Rifle magazines, began developing a 7mm wildcat on the .30-30 case. Ken's primary objective was to design a modern high performance cartridge that operates at chamber pressures compatible with Winchester Model 94 and Marlin Model 336 rifles. In 1984, U.S. Repeating Arms announced the availability of the 7-30 Waters chambering in a Winchester Model 94 with a 24" barrel. In 1986 Thompson/Center began chambering 10", 14" and 20" Contender barrels for the cartridge. The 7-30 Waters has proven its capabilities in the field on big game weighing up to 300 pounds at woods ranges.
