Wild Bill:

A 408 18" barreled gun would produce velocities around 2450fps with the 419gr bullet. 99% powder burn. Re22 powder 122grns.

The 338snipe-tac should exceed 2700fps with the 300grn bullet. Unknown how much as testing will only tell the tale.

I was thinking a four shot wheel gun would be great! I shot a 375 H-H revolver once, ONCE! About tore off my arm!
Darn thing weighed about 8 pounds i think.

I keep thinking about building an Encore in .416 Rigby, but loading it down to about 2400 fps with a 325 grainer. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] In my two Rigby rifles, my loads pretty much match the .416 WBY sending a 325 gr. X to 2850 fps. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img] If I ever did such a thing, I would HAVE to keep the rifle ammo away from the pistol. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]

From what i have been told by the longrange pistol shooters, the same loads in your rifle will be the same load for the pistol, you will loose about 300-400fps in the shorter bbl. So you will be looking at 2400 or so in the pistol with your rifle loads.

I guess what I meant to have said is that the Encore's loads would be loaded to the "Express Rifle" strength, instead of being hot rodded like I do in my BIG CZ550 Safari Mag. I see where I noted "loaded to 2400fps", where I should have said "loaded to 2400fps IN A RIFLE." [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img] Anyway, the Encore load would be a bottom end load for any rifle. In reality, a .416 Rigby Encore should shoot a 400 grainer to around 2000fps with a 15-16" barrel. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]



BTW, on your website, you noted:

New!!! Extra long range cartridge!!!

*10,3mm Sniper-Tactical*

[/ QUOTE ]

I think you need to rename that to an EXTREME LONG RANGE CARTRIDGE, since the .408 Cheytac and .338 SnipeTac are Extra long range cartridges!!! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] That sucker looks AWESOME! I noticed that you are going to build a "shortened .50 BMG action" just for your new wildcat called the ThunderStruck action. AC/DC fan?!? Yeah, me too!

Yea um no, not a AC-DC fan, a good friend of mine came up with the Thunderstruck name, from the song. I am going to put the back ground music on the website from the AC-DC album.

I am hoping the 10,3mm will work out ok, the 338 Snipe-tac sure met all expectations and more. I should have some action blanks in my shop soon, some are being deep drilled and others are being wire EDM machined. As soon as i get a action done i am going to order the reamers.
10,3mm pistol?????? hahahahahaha

Take care,
Dave
