Well I aint tryin to start any arguements here cause they both do a hell of a job, but your contradictions are confusing the hell out of me.
We have all been down the "I dont believe etc etc etc about WildCat bullets" so I aint gonna waste the breath. I would have figured SS7MM's testing would have proven it by now, I know it has for me. As far as winddrift, drop, and retained energy I cannot see many rivals to the big 7mm, except maybe a bigger 7mm bullet!!!
On killing power the dramatic effect of the bigger 338 cal bullet impacting a elks shoulder I am sure would be more impressive.

Well, I was referring to the 200 gr ULD RBBT. If we are talking about the 225 and 250 gr ULD RBBTs that will hopefully be ready this summer for us it would be a totally different story. The we would be talking about sectional densities of 0.399 and 0.443 respectively for the 225 and 250 gr ULD RBBTs.
Compare that to a 750 gr 50 cal bullet with a SD of .412!!!
I will not get into BC predictions but I will say that I would be very suprised if they were not the full equal to a 750 gr A-Max 50 cal bullet.
Totally different comparision here.
As far as BAT. Best to try to put it out of your mind. I odered mine and was told it would be 4 months, took 6 to get it here. Not saying yours will take that long but it may very well!!! Hard telling.

To the Poster - As the proud owner of a 30-378 I can say that it's not a good candidate for .284 It's all a balancing act between how much powder you burn to get a high velocity and how long the barrel will last.
I think that the 7UM and the 30UM with sub 100 grain cases are about the top all around performers with sub 30 inch barrels. I own a wild cat 7mm STW. Wonderful elk gun with it's 28 inch target barrel.
Just a side note. Muzzle blast and heat is the only negative aspect of a 30-378. Well my friends have said that even with the brake it really kicks with max loaded 200+ grain bullets and the 240's are really bad. When the barrel goes I think that the next go around it will become a 338-378 with a 30 inch barrel
