Yeah, I'm talking with Z-hat to see what we can do. I'll definitely be rebored if possible, lots cheaper. Z hat offers the express sights and quarter rib rear sight packages and banded ramp front sights.
It looks like the 411 Hawk is much more efficient in terms of cost and time of the two 400-'06 wildcats and even though they keep the '06 shoulder, the case is blown out to .454 giving enough bearing for headspacing properly in the 1895. New load data for the Hawk equals that of the Brown-Whelen at corresponding pressures. All Hawk data is kept around 60,000 psi about the same of the '06. Z-hat now has properly stamped formed brass for the 411 (and all other Hawk chamberings). They also have the dies. Swift, Hawk, NEI, Woodleigh, Barnes and others offer a variety of 411 bullets from 280 grains to the 400 grain.
I was having a tough time finding someone to do the 400 BW wildcat on the 1895. Either they didn't want to work on the '95 or didn't want to put the wildcat in the '95.
Keep your fingers crossed, I really hope this doesn't break the bank.
