I have several 7-30 Waters in a Winchester M94, Contender (rifle and pistol length barrels), and a 24" Encore Rifle.

AA 2460 Has always given me top velocity and accuracy in each of these barrels.

IMR 4320 is "almost" as good.

I use a T/C super 14 with the factory brake on a contender pistol frame. 34.0 grains of IMR 4064 under a 120 grain Hornady V-Max is my go to hunting load. I prime mine with Federal large pistol primers. My pistol will fire with any primer used during warm weather but Federals LPs are the only way I can insure ignition on days below freezing in my set up. I've missed two opportunities on nice bucks in the past do to hammer strike not setting off the primer in really cold weather. Not sure of the true issue in my pistol just know that with the softer Federals I haven't had that problem.

Nosler 120gr BT and Hornady 139gr SST with Varget shoots under 1” groups all day from a good rest at 100 yards all day.
