I built this wildcat from 450 NE brass.It is 3.45 in long.Tested it
with 4 bullet wts, 17 powders, 2 barrel lengths over a 3 year period.
It can get a 450 gr bullet over 3000 fps. Straight tapered case that can be reloaded dozens of times.Here are pictures..Ed.

It works great in Ruger #1's

You add a little weight to cut the recoil.We developed cartridge in
a Ruger 77 bolt action, using it as single shot.Had to narrow up back bridge to lengthen port, and changed bolt stop.We also chambered P-17 Enfield also.Two friends are rechambering #1's.We tested it with 1900
rounds in 3 years, using two barrel lengths.It will work in good O/U
and double rifles also.We are getting thing together to make a run of
factory brass.Have place to get reamers and loading dies.Anyone
interested let me know.

hubel458, looks like a great cartridge. It would be fun to have one, but I have a few of my own wildcats on the burner that need to be finished. 8)
