Now THAT's what I'm talkin' about [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img]
Is the 22AM w/the 100/107 WCprojected to do that.
That just happens to be the almost the exact distance where the yotes, when they do, set up an watch me or set there and bark. Since I gave away my 270 I have nothing but that 2-bit 338 and its a bit much and that's a bit far for it.
I may be the slowest guy on the mountain . . . . but . . . . I'm on the mountain!
This range is exactly what the 224 Allen Mag is designed to cover and game from yotes to deer as well. For yotes it will offer +1000 yard potential easily.
In theory that is [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]!
I have the reamer in shop ready to roll. Now I just need to get in a Lilja 1-7 twist and get a bit of time to build the test rifle. THis will be one of my post big game season projects along with the 338 Allen Mag and the monster 510 Allen Mag.
But to answer your question, the 224 AM was designed to offer easy 1/2 mile reach while still not causing severe pelt damage. Again, we will see how it turns out when bullets actually start to fly.
I tested the 100 gr ULD RBBT in a 1-8 twist 6mm-284. Got up to just shy of 3300 fps in a 30" barrel but there was not enough rotational stability to keep these bullets flying straight.
I would suspect 200-250 fps more velocity from the 224 AM in the same length barrel but we will have to see if the bullet jacket will survive this level of performance. Alot of questions yet with this little monster. Mainly another experiment to see how far we can push that performance envelope!!!

Contratulations on the song dog! What is this about a .510AM?? I've had it on my mind to contact you about a 50 BMG, do you have something better in the works?
By the way, I'm still running the 338 Kahn through its paces. Getting real good results with Lapua 250s and Barnes 210 tsx's. The 210s are a little light, but they shoot good! I'm waiting on some 225s and 250 uld rbbt's from Richard. I'll let you know how they do when I get them in.
