    RRRRRRRRRRRRRR!

    Why did you do that for!!! LOL!

    I’ve been always against these kinds of cartridges and going to start referring to them as fad cats!

    The jury is still out for reloading this cartridge at this time. Recommend contacting TC Arms to find out more.

    Clip from the TC web... This still-experimental ammo featured a 150-grain Hornady SST bullet at 2,950 fps--whopping velocity from such a short case.

    Another clip from the TC web… It is not yet known if the same technology can similarly enhance the .30 TC, but it isn't likely because of the limits imposed by case capacity. Initial indications are the .30 TC will hold up well with 165-grain bullets, but it isn't likely that it will come up to .30-06 performance with bullets of 180 grains and heavier.

    Coops bottom line

    30-06 factory load is 2970fps and hand load the same 150 grain Hornady with 53 grains of IMR4064 about 3170fps out of a 22 inch barrel!

    You’re not going to get the performance out of an already shortened 308 case as a 308 or better yet 30-06 and good luck loading 180’s. I don’t care what anyone says, that’s the new left wing shooters frame of mind.

    The reason they can safely push this little cartridge can be explained. Put it simply there is no old 30TC’s floating out in world. Therefore they can take the 30TC cartridge and load it hotter.

    What is this world coming to?

    By the way, Rolaids isle 5!

      like Clay said you would be better off with a 30.06 or 308. I have had my own problems with tc never own another one.
