    Visiting here to let folks know about our latest
    big wildcat cartridge.First it was developed by Rob,John
    and I over on AR big bore forum.It is a long brass case
    made from bmg brass that we put a 12ga size rim on.Rob and
    John used a Borchardt falling block action and I used a
    Savage 210 bolt action shotgun that I put heavy barrel and
    and stock on..In testing I got a 730 gr Dixie hard lead slug
    out at 2700 fps.Got a 3/4 oz barnes sabot out at 3900.
    Here is picture of our case next to a plastic 12ga shell,
    which can also be fired in our chambers.Ed.

    Wow. Maybe that's what I need to take to Africa!

    (Heh. Maybe I'll do it after I get my Ph.D. :D)

    How's recoil?

    Holy moly!! That is some overgrown 12G :D

    Both those quoted figures make for around 11,000 plus ft lbs ME! Hell - indeed!

    Is recoil even manageable???? :eek:

    JShirley--Not that bad as gun is built heavy for testing,

    Wouldn't that be a "destructive device?" Or did you get the BATFE to make an exemption because it can take regular 12 ga shells?

    Looks kind of like one of Clark's handgun rounds.

    Preacherman--Good man-Thanks for combining threads,
    and the better title..
    Ryan--That is why Rob floated idea for this, being able to fire
    shotgun rounds(plastic, paper, regular brass cases, our
    long brass cases) thus not under ATF rules.They don't
    even have to consider it or exempt it.. I have my 700HE, a
    long belted 3.87 inch case, built from bmg brass,
    that I put through the paperwork and got it registered as sporting case, which took 6 months.So I know the process.
    bogie-- He has our number, but he'd want one like Rob
    built on the Borchardt.
    hksw--We should have ultimate magnum.Here is pic of the
