Is your rifle going to be a single shot or have an extra long mag box?
These 160s I'm working on are only about 0.015" shorter than the 195 WCs
There isn't a much more satisfying thing to DIY and come up with exactly what you want. It's even better if it turns out.
Roy, could you measure a 169.5 Wildcat for me if you have one, OAL and base to ogive? My plan is to run them as a single shot if I have to out of my short action, I can go to a COAL of 2.90 and cycle through the mag OK.
What I would like to do is find a Savage 116 in a 300RUM and use the action with CDI bottom metal and tuck that all into a Russo stock, that would be as good as it gets for shooting a stretched out WSM!
Your DIY bullets are intriguing, I have a small lathe that I could set up for doing something similar if I have to.
Thanks for the input Roy!
