I know the 30 Herrett has fallen out of favor. From what I have read 1 reason is that it is a pain to make brass for.A while back I traded into a 10" 30 Herrett barrel. It came with a 155 pieces of formed brass. (not fire-formed).Unfortunately, the barrel is a scope only affair as it is only drilled and tapped for a scope mount.I came considering buying another 10"er if I could find one that I can put a set of sights on from Ken Light.Considering I have a decent amount of brass already formed, and already have dies, would you veteran silhouetters consider the 30 Herrett a viable Production round? Or should I just find a 7TCU and be done with it?

Go for it. The 30 Herret is a excellent production caliber. Get a file and trim die and the brass is a snap to form.

As all above had said forming 30 Herrett brass is no big deal, just remember to STOP short in forming the brass so you actually finish forming the brass [set the shoulder] in the pistol when you close the action.
NOW, if this pistol is only going to be used for shooting steel and IF you are going to have to buy a bbl, brass,ect. then I would suggest you take some time and ponder the merits of one of the little 30's {30 carbine, 32-20, }

I just picked up a 30 Herrett barrel this summer also. There's lots of .30-30 brass here, but I decided to try the pre-formed .30 Herrett brass that is sold by EABCO. Let them do all the work. All you have to do is set the shoulder back a bit to fit YOUR barrel, then load and shoot. It worked very well. Looking forward to using it next year...kind of a retro-silhouette entry.

The 30 Herrett has always been a fave of mine. I fired my one and only BB Production 40x40 with one WAY back in 1982. Would like to own another barrel in this caliber someday - when funds allow.

Scott Mann has been kicking some serious butt with his MOA in .30 Herrett (Harriet). He is mostly shooting 150 gr. bullets I believe. This year he won BB Production at the Internationals I think.

GZ,

Scott Mann generally kicks serious butt regardless of which handgun/caliber/chambering is in his hand at the time!    We need to get that boy to the West Coast in '08!
