    American Custom Gunmakers Guild,

    Being its president in 1992..He liked

    working with Martini Cadet singleshot rifles

    .Worked with guys testing armor long time ago.

    .....


    It is possible rig up holders for many types setups.,

    About shellholder supply for big cases,

    RCBS and others make slip in holders for shotgun cases

    that can work or reworked for big rimmed rifle cases...

    Here are various sizes.......

    16ga-- .810" rim,........ 20ga-- .760" rim,....

    24ga-- .725" rim,....... 28ga .680" rim....

    Ch4d and Buffalo Arms also have these larger shellholders...


    We fireform the 416 HSM with 65 gr of medium speed

    surplus powder, with rest of case filled with farina

    and grits mix, with a play dough plug in the neck.

    It is loud, so we shoot it into big container through a barrel size

    size hole, so the sound is muffled, so it doesn't deafen us..


    It is great getting more companies making 416 caliber bullets,

    long target and bore rider bullets. Ed..

    Wonder if a PTRD with 5 ft long barrel is stable enough

    for ELR , rebarrel to 416 and use our 416 HSM, 500 gr bullet ....

    .Here is up north guy using 585 HE in a PTRD with inserts,

    Light load.....Inserts are in the shape of the 14.5mm case....





    HERE ia video, 585 Hubel Express and water jugs - slow motion

    750 gr with 155gr RE17, just a moderate load.....Ed
