Re: .408 chevy tac

It is based off off an modified 505gibbs case necked down to .408 cal. The test projo has been 419gr made by Lost River Ballistic tech. Ballistic Co-efficient of .900 at a muzzle velocity of 2900 fps. Accuracy is as good as the shooter. How good is it? You make up your own mind.
