Yearling... With promise
I just completed a build on a Contender Carbine for my 10 year old Daughter to start hunting with. I picked a Match Grade Machine barrel and had it chambered for the old 7-30 Waters, I have just started to load some ammo and will begin testing in the next few weeks. Wondering if anyone here had any experience with this round in a 20" barrel? I'm starting with 120g Nosler BT's and hope to get close to 2700fps . She will not get a chance to shoot more than about 150 yards max on our land. Most shots she starts out with will be closer to bow range. Just hoping I made a good choice for her first Deer Rifle.
