Today I was thinking about wildcats.  Do any of you shooters have wildcats?  What are they?  What have you had?  How'd they perform?

a friend of mine shoots a 6.5-06, he swears by it for deer. most of the wild cats ive dealt with in my life were either .224 or 6mm variants. i.e 22k hornet, .219AI zipper, 6mm 30-30 AI. some day i like to do a 6.5RUM

  I use a .300 H&H casing to make a long neck version of the .300 Winchester Magnum.  Rifle is throated accordingly.

If you count the price of brass as a indication,  the .300 WSM  shoot is still a wildcat.

.44 AMP and .475 Wildey, both if these have been in production and out again -- I still turn brass for both.  The .44 AMP works best when loaded on the HOT side and the .475 Wildey when loaded around medium strength loadings.  My favorite wildcat is .357 AMP it is a real performer and fun to shoot.
