Re: Single shot pistol for Illinois

Here is a link to Mike Bellm's page Handgun Deer Hunting Rounds
It states that CNC cartridge makes loaded ammo.
I've taken two deer with the 300 whisper but in an ar platform.
I use my 10" Contender in 300 whisper for handgun silhouettes.

There is a 30Bellm but I can not find anywhere that manufactures it. Any help is welcome.
.30 Wagsal fits the bill nicely...I have one in a Savage Striker. Cartridge meets all the criteria and about the same ballastics of a .308.....Good Luck

Re: Single shot pistol for Illinois

my 14" TC encore whisper runs the 125 BTip at 2300 fps. Not to shabby and Mike Bellm often has them for sale.

He is also making the 300 Whisp-r on the 357 max case. This is a similar version of the Whisper

The 357 max as done by mike with the 180s is a potent combo also.

You may find something of interest on the enclosed link.

358 Gremlin, the 9x39 USA
http://www.bfgcartridges.com/358BFG.html

He does nice work and there are some very unique and interesting cartridges.
