Default One of my wildcats


Guys,
I thought you might be interested in one of my wildcat cases,
that I designed and shoot,
it is the right hand case.


Can you guess what it is,
what was the original case,
and what are the other spec's??


I did all 3 of them,
the first 2 are not reloadable,
any thoughts on what they are?


Tia,
Don

I'll take a stab at it

1st one is .22 short necked to .17 caliber
2nd one is a .22hmr stepped to .204 to .17 caliber
3rd 30-06 family case stepped down twice to a .22 caliber (must have something like a .223 wsm die or something like that for the case to fit)

You must have been bored..

Close Guys,

But No cigar, ;D


The first 2 cases are made from the 17WSM case,
the right hand case is a 25/06,


1st case= 17 WSM sized to 22 Super Jet/dies are CF from CH,(WSM cases are the only case that fits these dies),
2nd case = 17 WSM with a 204 cal neck added below the 17 WSM neck/shoulder,
3rd= 25/06 full length sized in a 308 die, 22-250 neck/shoulder added to the long neck remaining,
75gr bullet @ 3800fps/26" bbl, called the 224 LRVT/224 Hansell, listed in QL program.


I have a full series from 22 cal thru 357 calibers, in this double neck/shoulder design.


I love wildcatting.


Tia,
Don

Other than looking very cool 8) , what is the purpose of the double shoulder? I use the newly formed shoulder on my .22 K-Hornet as a second head space, and get great case life as a result.

keep em talkin' while I reload

SJ
Not doubting your info,
I have heard that Herters did a double shoulder and neck case,
but I have found NO evidence in print or photo's of their case.


I do know PO Ackley did a like case, which was a belted case,
with the first shoulder about 1/2" above the belt,
and the second shoulder in the normal place.


By any chance, would you have any printed info or photo's etc,
I would be greatly interested in it.

A photo of the Herters 270 double-necked case appears on the cover of Cartridges of the World Second edition. (The front and back covers are the same on this edition.)

Here's a scan made about a decade ago of that cover, cropped to show only the Herter cartridge. It's not a very good image:
.

.

In issue number 1 of Handloader magazine from 1968, on page 58 there is an article by Douglas M. Graves titled ".2240 Triple-Neck Terror", which describes that cartridge and includes an image. The article is clearly a spoof. Douglas M. Graves was a nom de plume of Dean Grinnell, a well-known gun writer of the time. (Douglas Graves = Doug Graves. Hah!)

If you can't find a copy of the 50-year of magazine, check the recent June 2016 issue of the magazine, No. 302. The entire first issue of the magazine was included in the recent issue.
