Fireplug,
Looks similar to the 500 Linebaugh.  Mr. Linebaugh quotes:
350 gr. LBT cast 1450 fps;

410 gr. LBT cast 1350 fps;
 
450 gr. LBT cast 1300 fps
 
All data from a 7.5 inch barreled tuned Ruger Bisley.

Fireplug,
Or eating it's steriods.  Actually if you look at the increased barrel length and maybe using a little slower burning powder, it may be a 500 Linebaugh or a 500 Maximum (or Linebaugh Long as it has been called).  It doesn't appear to be in the 50 Alaskan class, but then again, not many are.  Several good 'smiths are converting a variety of leverguns to the 50 Alaskan if you want something in that powerclass.  Ouch.

Fireplug,
Righto!!!  Good research.  I can fully appreciate wrestling with the first time wildcat issues.  I'm going through that myself right now.  Never did understand why the 256 wasn't very popular.  Seems to be a fine round.

Best of luck and let us know how the project proceeds.  It's always interesting to hear of the problems encountered and solutions to solve those problems.
