No real point to this beyond pure discussion...the 408 cheytac is still with us, though it seems to be just barely hanging on compared to its .375 caliber offspring. But this got me thinking...that 408 is such an oddball bore diameter. There are a few .411” cal and lots of .416” cal rifle cartridges but I think the 408 cheytac is the only 408 out there...am I wrong about that? And more interestingly, any 408” caliber wildcats out there. I know the 408 cheytac case has spawned wildcats of other diameters, I’m talking a different case necked down or up to use projectiles meant for the 408 ct. I figure if anyone’s done this it’s probably one of you people on this forum!
