Anyone shooting 7-30 waters??
Back in the spring I had a chance to buy a contender pistol chambered for 7-30 waters, it is the super 14" barreled model. The gun is 20 years old and from what I can tell very lightly to never been fired.
Years ago I had one of these in the carbine model (21" barrel") and was very impressed with the accuracy and performance on deer. I killed 2 does approx 225 yds away and they fell in their tracks! I'm just wondering how these perform in the pistol version? It has open sights right now, I'm debating on scopeing it as I never really cared for the balance of a scoped handgun.
I picked up some factory ammo, 120gr Sierra sp in the federal premium ammo, as I believe that these are the only factory ammo availible at this time (please correct me if I'm wrong). Anyone with any expierience with this calibur, please chime in with any helpful info, max range out of a short barrel, ballistics on these factory rounds out of this particular gun would be greatly appreciated, thanks fellas.
