You are not alone…brother…there are others that walk amongst us for whom no factory gun nor factory cartridge could possibly meet their divine standards of performance or execution of fit, form and function…What Wildcat is best and what all copper bullet should I use and who is the best custom Rifle Builder to use?
What other questions need to be asked!
energy needed at max range (needed is much more than wanted)
barrel length for these questions
do you want max pressure to be at 65k or less
I'd say, start with your favorite bullet and go from there
Build around the end result and work backwards
When you decide on the bullet try and have as much of the bullet past the shoulder as possible where only the boat-tail is in it
Once you have better parameters you can figure case volume needed for achievement as cross check against other cartridges that come close to your agenda
Also take in mind that some of the larger magnums and 308 like cases can have more or less pressure for max.
example..6.5creed is near 64 or 65k and 260rem is 5-7k less max pressure
This runs thru my head everyday on what this and what that on cartridge design
it might helpYour post got me to thinking, now have a terrific headache…..but, I digress!
Why don’t we put together a “spreadsheet“/survey of sorts, having all appropriate questions asked, posted at the beginning of his/her post. The person wanting the information can fill in all of the blanks…..then we all can see his/her needs/wants. We can then all chime-in attempting to accurately respond to his answers to the spreadsheet / survey!
I’m certain that there are many problems with this idea, but it’s just a thought!! memtb
