Re: Most Wicked Long Range Wildcat Debate!

Thanks Feenix, thats the best 6 min 32 seconds I've spent all day. I suspect the intangibles mentioned in the criteria are deal breakers for most of us. It's great to have options, and 2 guys out there like Kirby, and Shawn pushing the limits. One really couldn't go wrong either way.

    BroZ that thing sounds gnarly! What are the specs on a generic gun? That sounds wild! Seems the juices are flowin in the wildcats! Does anyone have any crazy 1k+ 7 or 6 mm setups?

    Same class of cartridges as the AM, Big Bear and other 408 case based stuff I think the snipetac stuff deserves a look. I am interested in the 375 Dave is working on but have toooo much stuff going to even consider another project now.

    VIERSCO.COM

    On the serious side....... I wouldn't go too far down the wild side if your really just getting into this stuff. I would honestly wear out a 300 WSM or RUM or two before you jump into the 408 stuff.

    I feel ya bro! However I like heavy stuff. I have a 458 and a 45-70 and the big boy .45-110 for pigs in south Alabama. So it ain't my first rodeo but I hear that these guys out here are making 7mm's go 2k?

    Ya but, wait 'till I develop some 375 to 400 grain loads.

    The reason I went with the 375 was that I figger'd I'd be wanting more if I went w/the 338.

    All this when I am firmly convinced the 338 RUM and more certainly the 338 Edge would be more than I'd ever need for anything I wanted to do.

    CE bullets in 375-400 grains? That oughta knock and elk off its feet and leave a nice sized crater in the hill side behind him.

    The 338 Lapua we have is more than we really NEED, but for long range oppertunities i think it serves its purpose quite well. 3 kills with it and the 280 grain LRX this season, my confidence with this bullet is growing fast. I still have a cow tag in colorado around christmas so hopefully we can test em out on elk at 400+ yards before this years hunting season is over.

    Biggest fail of 2014 so far... http://www.longrangehunting.com/foru...ea-ftf-128972/

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