Re: Wildcat Quick Load Question
I have a 416 wildcat I designed off the 338 Norma Mag case bumped up to a 35 Degree shoulder, my reamer is designed to seat the bullets way out to bottom of the neck, capacity will be pretty close to yours....
I plan on using the 416 Dakota starting loads, it is based on the 404 Jeffery case and is the closest in capacity to your 416 Lapua and my 416 PRO.
Kind of a cross reference to the 338 Edge vs 338 Lapua vs 338 Norma Mag AI
here's where I am at so far with 400 gr bullets, I plan to start with 10% lower than the max loads and work up from there ...
max 97.0 gr
max 95.0 gr
max 101 gr
max 95.0 gr
I hope to work up to 2600 fps and 6000 ft. lbs energy with a 26" barrel..
I haven't received my 416 PRO reamer from PT&G yet but do have my 375 PRO reamer and a Benchmark 30" bbl thats going to the gunsmith this week.
Let me know how your load developement works out as it will most likely be similar to mine and I'm a ways out on my 416 ....
How is it y'all still don't know the difference between CALIBER and CARTRIDGE ??
"In guns, particularly firearms, caliber or calibre is the approximate internal diameter of the barrel, or the diameter of the projectile it fires."
