Re: Flat shooting Elk gun?

POP,

My 7mm Allen Mag loaded with the 200 gr Wildcat ULD RBBT to 3200 fps. This bullet should have a B.C. in the very high .900 range. Run the numbers.

Reports will be coming this summer on this new round and bullet!!

Good Shooting!

The .338/300 is another option 200gr bullet at 3500+fps,250@3120,300@ 3000fps. No pun intended Kirby, your rounds sound really good too.

You need to contact Richard and ask him that question. Get the word from the wildcat himself. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

Re: Flat shooting Elk gun?

Mr. Allen, how does your 7mm wildcat compare to the 7mm Ultra mag? What is the parent case? I can only get about 3250 with 175's from my 7mm Ultra Mag. Thanks in advance for any info.
