sorry forgot to put in that the vol are with 27 in barrels info come from marty kolbet owner of twisted barrel. he told me as we all know already that the vol increase with the longer you go. and with some checking today federal is making the 500 brass in the african stuff might be cool to see were it goes. being the 7mm fan i'm i asked about doing a big 7 but he has not tried it yet. the other thing we found was there are other rifles aready built on this case in other parts of the world and since the yealy 70's.such as the 338 voschel

He has the distinct possibility of doing something with it. The successful wild cats have a support network in place. with some it was passed around with target shooting circles. One wild cat that I hear about here on LRH is a good choice for some one wanting it simply because it has a good support network behind it. Ive been wild cating for years and probably just picked up where your grandfather left off and made the same things he already made. There is nothing new under the sun but a support network, that's where things start happening. I honestly don't see the 30 going anywhere and the 338 has a chance only because of it's base diameter a shoe in for the Weatherby and LM bolt faces, other than feed and possibly a little extraction attention.

"The 500 Jeffrey has a Base diameter smaller than the 338 Lapua!"


I'm not convinced, 500 Jeffrey smaller than the Lapua?! Show me the case dimensions......I dare you....

.575 on the 500, .579 on the 338-378 and .588 on the 338 LM. The 500 is only about .030 longer in its origional form. The web thickness can not be included as capacity for the length. The 30-500 is not a 500. We commonly get more or less powder capacity than that .030 by our choice of seating depth an example is the 6.5-284 Norma verses the 6.5-284 Winchester. Shoulder angle and taper an example are the AI cartridges and shorter neck lengths as well - then again the Schuler is the same cartridge but is not the same as the 500. They are all 3 useable in the same action with limited concern. So how is the 500 any bigger of a cartridge than the others when it is no longer a 500. Chamber design is not the cartridge but yet free bore length is a large factor in bullet velocities as well So what is the hooferah about the 500 it is only in name of the parent cartridge - Maybe some would prefer to call their RUM a 338-404 Jeffery or their WSM by the same a 30-404 Jeffery. Over bore capacity has already been met without the need for another cartridge. There are exactly only two choices High pressure which is not a positive attribute or using the powders that are not yet available to the sportsman. The improved cartridges have already met the challenge - the wild cat already wild catted - Grandpa was impressed with the 30-50 BMG until he thought about it for a few seconds

If a 500 Jeffery is the same as a 404 then you are all taking about a 300 remington ultra mag with a fancy spin on the name
