Re: Wildcat question
Beat me to it jack. That would be my choice As it wouldnt require anything special from an action standpoint. a std .300 winmag action and a barrel short chambered for the 264 winmag. Either route you go would be a throat burner though. just make sure you go long on the barrel length to burn those monster loads of slow powder.
I find 26" about right for short action overbores like the .243 win to completely suck up a 40 grain charge of IMR4350, so with something like the .264 winmag thats gonna hold around 60 grains of the same powder, id go with at least a 30" barrel, but thats just me.
It takes 43 muscles to frown, 17 to smile, and 3 for proper trigger squeeze.
The latest caliber or gear is no substitute for experience and skill. Rifles and cartridges don't make hits -- shooters do.
