Not saying they are better, different. My wildcat design is based on the 408 Cheytac parent case but with shoulder moved significantly forward adn shoulder angle sharpened up noticably. Alot of testing went into the 338 AM and its siblings based on the 408 CT and I beleive I have designed the most aggressive case design based off that case that offers the largest case capacity and highest velocity potential possible with this case design.
Does that make them the best, not nessesarily, means they are the highest performing wildcats on that case. In a properly built rifle, there should be no difference in accuracy between the 338, 375 and 408 Cheytac or my 338, 375 or 410 Allen Magnums. Just an extra 150 fps in velocity with same bullet weights.
Just cuts time of flight down compared to the parent designs.
Again, not saying better, just different beast!!!
For some applications, such as a rifle you want to have a large volume of ammo loaded up for for defensive, tactical or offensive purposes, the Cheytac design is likely a better design just for the cost savings in getting formed brass. That is why I decided to get the reamers and offer these chamberings out of my shops for my XHS single shot and repeating rifles.
