The .30 TC is a cartridge developed by Thompson Center Arms.[1] It was released for sale in 2007. It was initially offered in the Icon series of bolt-action rifles, which were released at the same time. It was an attempt by Thompson Center to make a 308 Winchester length round with 30-06 Springfield performance. While it did accomplish this goal, consumer acceptance was low, and the round has remained on the sidelines.[2] The 6.5mm Creedmoor cartridge was created by necking down the .30 TC and that cartridge has achieved widespread popularity.
