My wildcats are designed specifically for big game hunting where shooting volume is limited. In a varmint rifle role, you would burn through the barrel life pretty quickly on my 257 AM. But for big game hunting where the number of shots taken a year is very limited, they work very well.

Remember that if you take a chambering using large charges of slow burning ball powder, and only load it to moderate pressures, you will have a powder fouling issue like you have never seen before.

In best cases, the ball powders are dirtier then stick powders and thats when you load them to their top pressures where they burn the cleanest and they are still dirty.

Drop the pressure and powder fouling increases dramatically. If your going to run ball powder, run her to top pressures for best results most of the time.
