I figured it was time to start focusing on some of the smaller cartridges. Several years ago swamplord and myself Worked with John Pierce at Pierce engerneering to have the 800 series (wildcat ) actions made. We quickly became side tracked with the devlopment of the 20x action and cartridges it utilizes. But all allong i kept thinking about that 800 series bad ass action. So last week John and i started on the Warrior series cartridges. The warrior will harness both rebated and ultra rebated rim diamiters. ( lapua and cheytac rims customers choice ).The cartridge will be desined to maximize a custom box that we have devloped that is wyatts extend length but much wider as the cartridges will be considerable larger in diamiter then the cheytac and enabelr case but much shorter. The idea will be to create a package rifle mag feed with cheytac/ enabelr performance but has a finished rifle build in the 12 to 15 lb range. Below is a solid works drawing of what will soon become the next generation of our adventure . Reamers have been ordered and brass prototypes will be ordered next week. This one will be fast tracked but the amount of design work still ahead is still staggering

358. Man after my own heart. I have a good wildcat which is performing well at long range. Love to see what you come up with.
It should push a . 358 347 grain bullet at or just above 3000 fps. Both badlands and cutting edge makes bullets for it.

I'm pushing their 340gr @ 3009 fps currently. 29". I'm changing to a 8.5twist, see how that goes.

I wanted to try badlands, but they stopped communication mid last year. Probably had to shut down for a while.

    I’ve had no issues getting bullet from them.

    Case is about the same length as a 30-06 case but is larger on diamiter then the 585 aferican case the aferican case is .680 at web. but this is not a wild cat it is not formed from any known parent case it is new manufactored case design. Thats all i am willing to share at this point in time.
