Boy I bet this cart in SWM/SSWM would be a smoker in a bolt action, turn it into a short action compact bolt rifle, Now that would be nice. Wildcats are cool;) What do you guys think, any input welcome. Aim small hit small. RAMbo.

RICK -

This WSSM case would hold about 50 grains of water to the base of the neck when expanded to .338. Power potential @ 60,000 psi is 3160 FPE or 2811 fps with the 180 gr 338 Nosler BT. Nosler 210 partition could clock 2600 fps, so its a nice round as long as you keep the bullets short and relatively light (for a 338). The 160 gr Barnes Xs might do 3000 fps...has a big edge on the '06 for everything but varmints. Needs a 20 inch bbl.
