Going out on a limb here...
Is it a 458SOCOM?

The .45 Blaser cartridge is one of the forgotten heroes.

It is (was) a German attempt to create a subsonic sniper cartridge.

It is said, development was initiated by the German Ministry of the Interior.

But finally, Germans decided velvet gloves are better than subsonic cartriges for dealing with criminals, and the concept was droped.

Blaser piced up the idea, and offered the supersonic version as a hunting castridge in its R93 straight pull rifle.

Worked great again, like a full house .45-70 Government, but was not a commercial success...... and was discontinued again.

Cases are still available from "shm Sueddeutsche Huelsenmanufaktur"

Sorry for hijacking the thread....

Hi Luke. Just saw your message. I am in Dillingham, and have been since 2002. I took an elementary teaching gig here, taught here five years, and then got a job with Togiak National Wildlife Refuge as their education and outreach specialist. Recently I just got a promotion and now I'm the Visitor Services Manager. Prior to DLG I spent 6 years teaching for Lake and Pen in Nondalton.

Hi TT
I am glad you found some useful info in my posts. Hard cast WFN with GC will do the job fine. I trust Veral Smith (owner of LBT company) - I believe that he can provide you with some finest HC bullets. Many companies are coping his design. I can help you from here in developing max loads (40.000psi) just let me know which powder you are using (I use Quick Load software which turns to be very reliable).
