Re: 500 Jeffery based wildcats

Keep us updated on the Werewolf, Pro. I want to see some loaded rounds. Also if you're moving a 230 Hybrid @ 3500 that is insane!

Re: 500 Jeffery based wildcats

Need a custom .308" 250-260 grainer at .8-825 BC going 3350+, that'd be a winner. If the 230's don't shoot I have a feeling the 240's will 😉. My .416-.375 RUM is almost complete as well, but now I feel slightly outgunned. Although, I don't think the bears will have a chance at biting me pushing 400 grains at 26-2650. Your 416 should be able to push the 340 CEB's at 31-3200 that will be an amazing longrange dangerous game slayer.

I don't think you'll get 2600fps out of a .416RUM. My buddy built one 6 or 7 years ago and got about 100-125fps over a .416 Rem. or about half way between .416 Rem. and a .416 Weatherby.

With H4831 I should be able to attain 2600 with ease at 97-100% load density and a 27" barrel. http://www.z-hat.com/416%20UltraCat%20Flyer.pdf

Some awesome looking rounds. Be neat to see what they'll do on game at some extended ranges.
