Awesome, different ,and cheap wildcats...

Hello everyone, i have a want for getting into long range target practicing. I want a show it off cause its badass and big piece, not like 50 bmg big like 300 win mag or 7mm rem mag big. I am about done setting up my 7mm rem mag for long range hunting, and long range fun. I am looking for something most perferably in 284 diameter. i dont like the ultra mag because you only get about 2 times the recoil and use 2 times the powder with about an 8 percent increase in performance... I always liked the look of the weatherby mags. but i am looking for something that is big, efficient, different, and something that has cheap cases, not like 338 lapua expensive, it doesent have to be like 8 bucks for a thing of 50 but at least under 50 bucks for 50 cases. I am looking for something pretty dang fast... im looking for the 220 swift of 284's. As i shoot trap, i am pretty much okay with recoil until you get into anything bigger than the lapua for recoil... I mean everyone freaking uses a 308 winchester at the local long range gun range... would the 7stw be a good choice? Again im looking for something with badass name... i would like something that is also available in a factory rifle perferably... But i can have a new barrel made for it... thanks guys. Happy holidays.

Most of this is mutually incompatible.
220 swift but no ultra cuz of effeciency loss so no ultra.
Cheap brass is doable but not in combination with a super fast 7mm thats not an ultra.
You want it in factory rifle? But its a weird wildcat? HMMMMM
A 7mm ultra will be about all the horsepwer you will easily get but you said no. That leaves the STW which has many of the same issues as the Ultra + same brass issues, mainly its crappy.
A 7mm-338 lapua would be cool and trendy but not factory stuff.
a 7mm excalibur= no factory but would be neat
allen mags=$$$$
So if its not an ultra its a 7stw.
If you relax the factory rifle part then there are a lot of options.
The 7mm-338 rem ultra would be fun as would the lapua case.
An excalibur would be just an absolute monster with the 195 pills...but so would the ultra.

I think the 195 bergers will finally make the 7mm ultra a real gun. Neck down the new 338 EDGE brass to 7mm and whammo! They should have built the 7mm Ultra with the 338 Ultra as the parent case instead of the 300 ultra.
a 7mm-416-cheytac uhhh no factory and talk about inneffecient

My guess on W3P .308 230 Grain Bullet: G1 .740-.755

Re: Awesome, different ,and cheap wildcats...

I like the thor....coolest name so far. And the norma case adds the sex factor. Another option might be the 7mm hsidkapb which is a 20mm blown out and improved necked down to 7mm.

COuld you give me some details about that thor? It just sounds badas..... And to the first guy that posted, Do you realize that having 100 338 lapua brass that is unprimed with no powder or bullets will set you back about 250 bucks? Im not looking for ultra super fast, just like the stw but in a badass name. I was just wondering if there were any cool wildcats that i wouldnt have to buy a barrrel for.... because when i buy a barrel i tend to over do it and get some 1000 dollar barrel lol... I might take a ride down to allens place and see about getting me an allen magnum. But i like the sounds of that thor...

Re: Awesome, different ,and cheap wildcats...

please keep in mind im not looking to do any sales immediately, i need to finish up building my 7mm rem mag first.... I just need a new bolt handle, some engraving, and a couple parts ceracoated. Can i get instruction on how to post a picture? I need some ideas... Also im almost pretty much dead set on a shooting times westerner, but the brass is often out of stock :(. that brings me to the 7mm weatherby... what kind of advantage in fps am i getting with that and the rem mag?
