Before I was firing all the calibres available for me up to the powerfull European '366 without. Wasn't comfortable, but without problems.
I also used to fire the 300 RUM without a brake. No problem with it but not very pleasant. I put a brake on my new RUM to make it more enjoyable and also to be able get back on target quickly which I think is very important in Long Range shooting, especially if you don't have a spotter.

Sounds good to me. I was thinking of a .012 taper and a .320 neck

Yes, absolutely right! Shooting and hunting without knowledge of the bullet placement / impact is meaningless and irresponsible.

Re: 8mm Thread

Here is the new line-up, all corrected.


The 8mm Morteferrum (previously Titan) based off the .338 Lapua cartridge....



The 8mm Bama, which is based off the 8x68mm Shuler cartridge...



And the 8mm Orbitalis (previously Morteferum) which is based off the .338-06 A-Square cartridge....

Great designs and names! Hope you'll get the money to have these wildcats done. Both as rifles and cartridges of course.

Thanks!

My first Wilcat is the .22 Evidentem, which is one I designed based on the Berger 90gr VLD bullets for serious LR varmint hunting. I haven't talked much about it, because it's kind of a secret project of mine.

Next will be either 7mm Malum or 8mm Bama (both use 8x68 Shuler for parent case).

Due to restrictions (6 guns in total, including shotguns & rifles) I'm considering the purchase of a system rifle ( the Danish Schultz & Larsen) with interchangeable barrels, not now but for 2014. The advantage is to use always the same triggerfeature, stock, mounts and scope(s) if requested. Calibre - frame from 222 to 505 Gibbs, and at least the number of barrels is not limited. Next as you already know will be a 7RM for sure. More than good enough for all from roe to moose at our latitude.
