The .30 Walker is an intermediate cartridge developed by Mark Walker of Houston, Texas.

Description[edit]

This cartridge is an improved version of the PPC cartridge family necked up to accept .308" bullets. The .30 Walker was designed for 100-300 yard bench rest and f-class shooting using 112-118 grain flat based bullets in slow twist rate barrels.

The .30 Walker case may be made by using Lapua 6.5 mm Grendel brass and increasing the caliber to .308 and turning the neck diameter to .330".
