From what I understand, the 7.62x39mm is one of their more popular custom shop chamberings. TC website has a listing of their custom calibers on
Another excellent choice for TC barrels is SSK Industries. They have an excellent reputation. In medium calibers chamberings, The 7.62 x 25mm
Tokarev,.30-357 or .30 Herret from a 10-12" barrel seems to me the way to go shooting cast bullets. The little Tok round will push 100-120 grain
cast bullets as fast as you can without leading and is extremely economical to load as compared other .308 caliber chamberings. The SSK .30 Mini
Whisper is based on the .30 Mauser/Tokarev and supposedly the most accurate of all .308 cartridges shooting 170 grains or less bullets at subsonic
speeds. I mention the 100-170 weight grain bullets because they are very common and can be found even at general stores in some fairly remote areas.
Even at subsonic speeds(below 1060 fps in most cases) a hardcast lead bullet of 170 grains will have tremendous penetrating power at ranges under 100
yards. Several .308 caliber airguns have used bullets in the 120 grain range at under 800 fps to harvest wild boar of about 140-200 lbs range at
distances out to 50 yards.
Check Graf and Sons or Midway for 7mm gas checks. I know they carry them for 6.5 mm, so the more common 7mm should be available.
