Wildcat Cartridges

I have had this wildcat cartridge in mind for a while, but don't know where to start or begin. I have the idea, but need someone who is honest and can draw up dimensions for me without ripping my idea off, and submitting it for their own. I don't have a clue if this has already been tried before of not, since I don't discuss it with many people. I am just wondering which direction I need to head. And how much it will cost. It uses a parent cartridge, so the cost should basically just come down to scaling dimensions and having a custom reamer and custom dies made...

If anyone can give me any info on where to begin, it will be greatly appreciated.

Re: Wildcat Cartridges

Nobody else has any help for getting a wildcat started? Any computer programs I can download to create specs, etc???

Re: Wildcat Cartridges

You could down load a cad program called draftsight, I think you can get it for free. I would then try and find dim's of the parent case and do any modification you want.

Re: Wildcat Cartridges

I would call a reamer company and discuss it with them. Unless you intend to patent it I wouldn't worry about discussing it with others as most everything has been done to one degree or another. The reamer companies will also send you reamer prints of the parent case or whatever version they have that is closest.

Re: Wildcat Cartridges

I may be wrong, but this is a mix between several different cartridges....I'm 99% sure it would be new to the game... And if it works as good as it does in my head, I think it could take off with a bang (pun intended).

Re: Wildcat Cartridges

I have done a couple of wildcats. I downloaded a blank reamer print from the PTG website, filled in the blanks, and faxed it to them. They made the reamers and sent them to me.
