.300 Raptor

A friend of mine is working on a rifle that is chambered for .300 Raptor.

There are no other descriptive markings on the barrel next to the chambering.

He believes it was chambered by McWorther (sp?) Rifles. He has attempted to reach out to them and they will not respond.

He believes the parent case is the 7.82 Lazzeroni.

Anyone have accurate information on this chambering?

Re: .300 Raptor

eddybo,

The .300 Ultra Raptor is a 7.82 Warbird with a .001" tighter neck, and .001" smaller at the base of the case.
The 7.82 Laz case is used with the standard Laz die set.

Can't imagine chambering for that cartridge.
Maybe that's why he's sending it in for a re-chamber.

I'm with you James...

He's going with a standard .300 RUM.

Re: .300 Raptor

Sounds like another 300 Varminter idea there.
