Typically, I would have posted this in the Specialty Handgun Section, but I would like to tap into as many people as possible.
I need your help in coming up with a wildcat cartridge in 6.5 that will give me performance (stay supersonic and hopefully above transonic) out to and just beyond 2K. I seriously want to nail a PD @ this distance.
The challenge is to do this in an 18" barrel
This will be in a specialty handgun.
XP or Striker.
There is a possibility of a custom non-designated action or one sold as a handgun action.
For perspective I have 2 SP's, both are 17" barrels (1-8 Twist). One runs an 140 A-Max @ 2775 and the other a 142 SMK @ 2700 from the muzzle.
the A-Max load is in a XP and is warm even when using Lapua brass (slight ejection marks on the head).
Okay guys, let the creative juices flow
