.360 Remington Buckhammer!

They will go over 60 thousand psi, a lot more than a lever. You will get more bolt thrust with the 444 case but not much. A lever goes around 46 I think. Thanks again Bob. Frank
 
No joke!! I think the .366 Camelknuckler would let us retire early. @Bullthrower338 we have dibs. Still like .366 PW but may be a bit too much. Lol
I'll conquer all wildcattery with my new .399 Clam Diddler. With a true diameter of 4-oh-oh and a case length of 3.5 inches it will deliver more than expected from its unassuming case head stamp. Utilizing a new ribbed case design it's sure to pleasure niche enthusiasts and also to confound regulators. Headspace to be governed by a rim, belt and case mouth for triple ridiculundancy and maximual conundrum when it comes to determining case paternity.

Forrest at only 3.5 inches it might have to be called the Doe Chuckler. I guess it would all depend how you used it though!
 
Ya, I'm gonna have to go with the Bull on that one Forrest.....the ribbed design is pleasing, but the 3 inches falls of bit short of expectations........triple head spacing is a nice feature. .......FWB
 
I have read that the No.4's in .308 had a tendency to set back after a bit and need new bolt heads fitted to keep headspace in line.
@sestoppelman
That may be so but I've not heard of it. The beauty of the No4 is bolt heads are numbered 1 to 4 with each one being 0.003 bigger than the one before. Thirty seconds to change a bolt head. In Australia for club use in full bore competition they had to be reproffed.

Well if I'd have used a 4" case you'd have had to register for an onlyfans subscription as the action required would be high maintenance. We'd probably rename it the PhudPhumbler:P Elmer Fudd::S Beat Dead Horse: after a number of short strokes and it would eventually be regulated to single shots due to the long reload times.

Yet another person who couldn't be an architect! Three and a half inches! I'll not be rounded down sir! Especially not in a place that makes a big to do over 0.013 inches as the difference between game killer and straight bouncing off deer! Imagine what a half an inch would do! Especially in a .400 caliber. Surely it would crumble empires and promote one to King High Lord Gamekeeper! Probably shoots flatter than anything coming before it too. :E Lol:
 
Seriously though, I already have a 375 Win and a 357 Max which span the niche well enough for me. And there have been a lot of other rounds in this category.....35, 351 and 401 Winchesters date back over 110 years....as for admin requirements pushing firearms development, I must admit, I don't even know the definition of a rifle anymore......as a rifled barrel in a 12 ga is still classed as a shotgun around here................I do like the trend toward shorter hunting ranges and less 1000 yard sniping and the Legend and 360 help in this regard........FWB
 
Last time i elk hunted I took a cow at 225 yards with my 500 Jeffery. While not an antelope round it's one hell of a "brush cartridge" in the black timber. Plan to go for a bull this year
Ohh there will always be the overkill naysayers. Those people have never come up empty on what most would believe was a good blood trail. Big bullets being driven in timber are a recipe for needing a skinning knife.
 
Just sayin'...

I wonder if Heym will begin offering rifles chambered in this cartridge? I mean it is rimmed after all.. :ROFLMAO:
And I'm sure Blaser will soon offer barrels for their R8 in the Buckhammer? Maybe the Legend too? LOL

Also read that the No.4 .308s had some strengthening done to them to take those higher pressures.

The basic design is a good one, but was never intended to house cartridges working at 50K+ pressure.
 
I may be mistaken here. I think I was reading about early attempts to convert earlier Enfields to .308, not the No.4.

I was all over the place last night looking things up and probably had a senior moment....

Just looking at Skennertons book and he clearly states the No. 4 was adequate to contain .308 pressures.

I know also they made No.1's in .308 at Ishapore but with better steels. I had one of those and it shot fine. Still not a place to hot rod but with factory pressures they are OK.

I do agree. Did you say senior moment, or for me it’s senior life. Put mind in gear let out clutch just get a whereing sound.

Sadly yes, senior times they are. Be 70 this summer.
