I was originally going to get the 7 mag. barrel. I intend to hunt mainly with a blackpowder still.

I know i recently read an article on the 30 TC. None of my reloading manuals list that round. I'll have to see if I still have that magazine right now I don't remember which mag it was.
That's not just because the 30TC is a new round PA. It's because reloading the 30TC brass will only get you slightly LESS than 308Win performance. The 30TC is a proprietary loading cartridge using Hornady's magical pixie powder. If you are a reloader, avoid this cartridge.
IMHO, not a good choice for Africa. Your choices of loadings are too limited.
Rumor has it. I've seen on several different forums the same complaint, so it may have some validity. Encore's 7mm bores are notoriously PROBLEM CHILDS.
The 30-06 gets my vote and Federal's high energy loading of the 180gr partitions will be plenty flat enough at 2800fps.
