Re: 375-408 Cheytac


In the latest issue of VHP there is an article talking about my 50 Allen Tactical, basically my 338 Allen Mag necked up to 50 cal. Based on the 408 CT case it is getting legit 2450 fps performance with upper end pressures. My idea was to market this toward the military as well to those units using 50 BMG rifles that are big and heavy.

I can chamber my 50 AT in rifles that weigh as little as 15 lbs and with a quality suppressor would be much more enjoyable to shoot then say a 25 lb 50 BMG.

Anyway, I agree with your comments, breaking into the military market is extremely difficult, even with a good product.

Uncle Sam is making very good use of the .408 CT these days so their considering another variant is not likely.

Question for Kirby and Dave: In your .375/.408 variants, what twist rate do your use? I'm looking at building one but going 29-30" with a 1:11 twist.
