Computer programs for creating wilcats


Registered Users do not see the above ad.


I once read in a gun magazine about a computer program one can buy, on a disc, that can assist one determine what powder to use in various cartridges, including helping create wildcats. Can anyone point me in the correct direction? Thanks. ~~~Suluuq

Might have been Quickload. I think there is a computer version of Load from a Disk, but I have not used that.

Quick Load is one that is often used. Marty of Teppo Jutsu has developed quite a few wildcats and one of his most successful is the .458 SOCOM. While it is no longer a wildcat, load data is still pretty scarce and none of the reloading manuals I know of offer any data. All the data we have on it comes from the initial loads that were done with Quick Load and from people actually loading for the round. It is not perfect, none are, but Quick Load does give you a very good place to start. Marty has used QL to help me develop loads for my .358 HDH as well as the 470 Rhino, .500 Phantom, and .338 Spectre.

Computer program

I use load from a disk and have been able to input dimensions of wild cats and to find pressure and load data.
