    We made 458 WSM with my friend. We get very good velocities with short barrel.
    680- 700m/s with 42cm barrel and we use 400gr Swift- A-Frame. The gun weights under under 3kg without scope

    I necked down a 375 Ruger to 9.3 to shoot 250 Accubonds.

    Oldish thread I know. But just wanted to comment on this post above.

    The .577 Tyrannosaur sounds cool to me - I’m a fossil nut though. However! As much as I like the .600 overkill as a cartridge I couldn’t own one just because of the stupid name. .600 Belted magnum or something I could go for.

    I’m also not a fan of people making wildcats to tack their names on to for the sake of it. I’ve designed one, and it’s just named *caliber* and *case length*. Not giving away what it is, but as an example it’s similar in name to how the English did it - .577 3” etc.
    To the point, makes sense.
