7-30 water

Does anyone have pet loads for 7-30 Waters?
I'm shooting an old style Contender with a 23-bull barrel using fire-formed 30-30 brass.

Looking for a north east deer load and also a target load.

Waters

Has anyone used 307 Winchester brass to convert to 7-30?

Don't think the 307 can be formed to the waters. Same .506 rim, but the diameter forward of the rim is .471 vs .422.
