375/408

Fiftydriver,

I am very interested in getting some of the 350gr wildcat projos. You got idea of when they will be out? I would like to get on that order list so I can get some to test.

I am in total agreement with "solids" setup pros and cons.
As well as the better hunting abilities with the lead cores.

Thanks again for your time--Louis Corkern

Richards waiting on hid 375 dies to get in and then I Assume he will be running on them.

I do not know when the dies will be in. I think he expects them anytime. Send him an e-mail at wildcatbullets@hotmail.com

Lazylabs,

Dean M. (Triggerfifty) designed and built bipod and modified that stock for that bipod.
I wish I could get my hands on another one, but Dean has sorta dropped off radar to pursue a medical career.

Thanks--Louis Corkern

.375-.408 Ct

What twist would work best for the .375-.408 CT with the newer heavier match bullets that are coming?

Thanks.

Chey Tac is using 11.5 twist barrels for all bullets.

Chey Tac was having bullet failures with the SMK prototypes at full pressure velocity so they had to have Sierra redesign the 350 gr MK. I would say the 1-12 would be nearly perfect for this bullet as its really quite stubby to be honest. Would have much rather seen them make a 375 or 380 gr version.

For the long Wildcat Bullets, I ordered a 1-10 Lilja for testing which should easily allow me to shoot up to a 400 gr ULD RBBT or 375 gr AT RBBT. Time will tell.
