A-Square invented it. It is in Any Shot You Want .
Quite the high intensity round.

IMO, lay in at least 1,000 rounds of brass before you start the build.

I met a guy in Hoonah that was on a cruise . He shot an one in competition. . Only one I've met that had one.

    1000 rounds of brass? You mean like 200 cases with 5 expected reloads or 1000 actual cases??? Im confused too.

    1k brass. So if they quit making it you will still be able to shoot your rifle.


    . In my trials of the 9.3x64 Brenneke. I ran into that problem. I thot good RWS brass would always be around so I didn't get enough.of it. I very much regret that now. Tho I have enough to hunt with, I don't have enough for blasting and its a great rifle to just shoot.

    I think a couple hundred brass would last me a long time I have a lot of rifles to shoot and this would be a long range elk hammer.

    Im not sure that the cheytacs are going anywhere. But you never know. If they do stop producing 408 and 375 brass then i guess you could get 505 gibbs but for me if they stop making brass for it, ill probably rechamber or sell the damn thing part by part.
