With the recent manufacture of the 1886 and it being a good strong gun that will handle the longer length of the old cartridges, has anyone ever tried a 50-110 necked to 45 and made up like a extra long 45 Alaskan or Ackley improved?  sounds like it would be a real thumper but I wonder if it's possible.  I also wonder what a new 1886 chamberd for the original 50-110 would do loaded up to around 40,000 CUP in these modern guns.  Haven't seen anything about something like this let me know if you have. Might be my next wild off the wall project.

Garth;
I did a little research on the new M 1886 and also on specs for the 50-110. I haven't heard of anyone attempting what you're discussing. The only drawback that i cans see is the possibility of finding brass with a web strong enough to handle 40,000 cup. There is some good brass available to us now though. You've got me curious on this one. I'll look into it a little deeper for ya. Hmmmmmmm
