This is a new Proprietary
Cartridge, at first glance,
the 30 T/C, looks like a 308
Winchester shortened by 1/8
of an inch.
Below is what Hornady
says about the 30 T/C:
"Quite possibly the most
technologically advanced
cartridge ever developed, the
new Hornady 30 T/C was
specifically designed for
Thompson Center's new Icon
bolt-action rifle. Built on the
premise of optimal ballistics,
Hornady has perfected the
balance between case volume,
bore volume and burn rates for
both the 150 and 165 grain
offerings.
The 30 T/C is slightly smaller
in capacity than the 308
Winchester, but delivers
ballistic performance exceeding
the 30-06.
With a muzzle velocity of 3000
fps, the 150 grain load
outperforms the 308 Win by 180
fps and outperforms the 30-06
by nearly 100 fps."
