Since I got back from Africa I have had my guys working on 2 new guns. A man has to think about something on that 16 hour flight. Anyway, one is the new lever gun I posted yesterday, the other a whole new AR-10 cartridge and gun. We have been working mostly on these after hours and on weekends so as not to spend time working on them when we could be finishing a customer's gun.

So, get your thinking caps on again. A new caliber built on an AR-10. Like the new lever action I posted yesterday, we have been shooting this one for the last couple of weeks and it is performing flawlessly. My original cartridge was a bit hot and cratering primers but we have toned it down a slight bit and it is still running perfectly at a projected 3200 fps. On the caliber there has never been a successful conversion to this caliber in an AR. So, boys and girls, whatcha think? And in the pics the gun is the prototype. The barrel is blue but in the white.

least not to my knowledge. Our new one was developed back in late march and early April. And I wouldn't touch a Creedmore cartridge.

when I come up with a new cartridge I run it by Dave

Manson, my reamer guy as he has a book of all registered wildcat cartridges. If it has already been done, we forget it. No sense spending a minimum $2000 getting a new cartridge off the ground if it has already been done. Dave has stopped me from going ahead with 2 or 3 cartridges in the past that have already been done.

A 460 case could go in there with a mag BF but I
