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...
Sorry but RH300UM is better person to answer your query on the .284 Thor.

BIG AWESOME AND CHEAP...... would you like me to spoon the cake into your mouth for you? Joking aside, have you at all concidered a smokeless powder muzzleloader? Brass is about as cheap as it gets, BIG and COOL is there too. Today's smokeless front loaders can be had in calibers as small as 6mm and as big as .50cal. The most common seem to be .45's and they are right in line with a .458WinMag on the power scale launching a 275 grain bullet at 3000fps. Bad Bull and Swinglock come to mind first but there are others. Richard Franklyn offers a DVD with plans on building one with a M700 action and DSS Custom as well as D&T Custom offer conversions for a T/C Encore if you have one of them. They seem pretty neat to me and are very accurate. Give it a thought
there is alot of 7mm rem mags that are cheap at the local gunstore. There is one 7mm ultra mag there, it is one hell of a nice deal at only 600 bucks with a break and stainless barrel, There is also one 6.5-284 norma that is set up all tactical with a break, karsten adjustable cheekpiece and a picitini (sp?) rail for only like 800 bucks. but i want something where people go wow... Ive had several people ask if my hunting gun chambered 7mm rem mag was a sniper rifle (it is set up just like one with a thumbhole stock)... I want the same with the next build... I am kinda leaning toward another 7mm rem mag because of the cost and the simple wow factor of it. It will take everything in north america with proper bullet selection, and take a cape buffalo with some nice bullets and a perfect shot. and dont say a 22 will take one down with the right shot... it has up to two inches of the roughest thickest skin you will ever see in your life... Im just looking to put holes on paper at a mile... and i know a 7mm rem mag is more than capable of doing so... if a 308 winchester can put em on paper at a grand and a half... so can a 7mm rem mag... Ill post a pic of my 7mm rem mag if i can find a picture of it on my computer haha... My wife has the keys to the garage and shes at work. : /
