    Dave,

    Its off the BMG but improved in form. Basically all the same shoulder and body configurations as the other Allen Magnums. A bit more body taper though.

    You take a case of that diameter and length and improve it and you get a dramatic increase in capacity. Think of it as a 22-250 compared to a 22-250 AI. Gain alot, only with the BMG your starting with 220 to 250 gr powder capacity depending on the bullet and powder.

    Our goal is a 750 at just shy of 3000 fps. Better yet, we have been looking at 850 to 900 gr ULD RBBTs and hope to drive them to the same velocity that the standard BMG will drive a 750 gr pill. Even 1000 gr weights have been talked over.

    Yes, recoil will be a bit stout!!! How stout, we will have to see. Terminal energy should be most impressive though!!!

    TERMINAL ENERGY ???? we'd could only shoot into the bottom half of our little mountains here in Pa. some might only be a couple hundred yards thick towards the top!

    I believe JD Jones of SSK industries is doing something similar and calling it the 14.5mm JDJ. You might check out their site Here. Looks interesting to say the least! 1173 grain bullet at 26-2700fps!
