Re: 500 Jeffery based wildcats

I have no experience with Defiance actions but if it can run the big Weatherby cals off the 378 case and the 338 Lapua, then of course you will be able to !

Have taken the 375 Mjolnir out for some more load development and took it for a 1000 yard walk, at this point have yet to chronograph my loads ( my Magnetospeed chrono is finally on it's way, thanks Andy !) both of my Gamma Master Chrony's shook a tit and I don't bother setting them up anymore .
as soon as data is compiled I will post on this thread ! so far the Benchmark barrel has impressed the heck out of me, accuracy in load developement has been outstanding ! we will see how it performs in top end hot loads .

also really impressed with the new Nightforce ATACR ! 120 minutes of elevation on top of a 40 moa base ya can shoot way out to 2k+, just need to learn how and practice more, haha !

finally found a soft case that my Hammer Of Thor can fit in and zip up easily ! with the 33" bbl and the big Muscle Brake and the KRG Whiskey 3 chassis the overall length is 56 3/8" , the rifle fits comfortably with the Nightforce scope and bipod installed, absolutely awesome !! also got a case for my soon to be completed 338 Wolverine with the new gen 4 Whiskey 3 chassis !
contact Brian for the rifle cases @....

Re: 500 Jeffery based wildcats

Man that .375 looks good, especially with the CEB seated in there. Thanks for stayin the course with this thread, many of us appreciate it.

I eagerly await some performance data.

Re: 500 Jeffery based wildcats

** UPDATE**

when I necked down my 338 Wolverine to 30 cal, I made the neck longer and named the new wildcat the 300 Wolf,
after considering the fact that a "30 Wolf" has been around for a long time and a familiar name on LRH, I was going with naming it the "300 Timberwolf" but was informed that a fellow Alaskan had taken that name for his 338 Lapua based wildcat !

So the name was changed to "300 Werewolf"

the name fits very well, I think ! this is a monster of a 30 cal cartridge, case water capacity is 145 gr, approx 27 gr more than the mighty 7.82 Warbird ! ( a longtime favorite)

based on capacity and new powders, expect to run the Berger 230 gr bullets at 3500 fps !

the reamer is in my possession and also received my 416 Grizzly reamer (375 Mjolnir necked up and longer neck)

Re: 500 Jeffery based wildcats

The 300 werewolf sounds impressive. What length barrel are you thinking about using? Also do you know what psi the 500 Jeffery case will withstand?
