Moonclips are always a good idea but in this case not required. Headspace on the shoulder. That said I think I would do 350 Legend before I did 300 BO. Shouldered cases can sometime bind up revolvers.
Yeah, and that's unfortunate because I've had an idea for some time now for a wildcat. Magnum Research would have to chamber a BFR for it as it would require a long cylinder.
I think a .300 Blackout necked down to .22 would make a great long range varmint cartridge. I could probably even have a rifle chambered for it
N frame .22 WMRF 16 shot 8 3/8" barrel with scope!
Just because something CAN be done, doesn't mean it SHOULD be.
Man builds things to prove he can.
Then, others ask why was even done?
And just go right ahead and call it a "Titanic."
That is a 221 fireball, the parent cartridge for the 300 BO
I guess I need a new project. Maybe a .243 Winchester necked up to .30 caliber.
I always thought a .308 Win necked down 6mm would make a hot rod. But, that might be going down took much. 6.5 may be the better choice.
Them, a .460 Wthby necked to .17 should get well over 4000 fps.
I wondered howl they would compare?
When did the 327 die. This is news to me. Before the China Virus, when things were normal, 327s were selling faster than they could build’em. I think the cartridge has a decent following. Is it as large as the 9mm, no, but I don’t think it’s ready for a ride in a hearse yet either.
The .30 Carbine necked up to .41 or .44 Caliber. A 200 ~ 210 gr. SWC bullet, heel crimped.
The revolver would be a Single Action, with the ejector assembly on the right side of the frame, a rammer on the left to accommodate the front loading cartridges. The advantage of this would be to allow very light powder charges yet still maintain a decent caliber bullet. Heel crimped bullets, oversized, would provide sufficient friction for holding the rounds in place. The .30 Carbine, being rimless, would be a natural starting point for the development.
What you’re describing, I kind of envision looking similar to the cartridge shown on the left. I had put this together a few years ago on April Fool’s day, as the .40 GIS (Sig spelled backwards). It’s a 9mm necked up to .40 caliber.
The Henry is the only exciting thing to happen with 327 in forever. Even S&W gave up on it after the 622 and 632.
If you want a revolver in 327, you're pretty much stuck with Ruger. I like Ruger but I also like options.
Henry is a great gun. I really enjoy mine, but I don’t think S&W is the coroner.
I love the Henry too and want my own eventually. I also love the Rugers as mentioned. There's just not enough options for this round though and it's sad.
