And, since there's a very limited supply of long/heavy bullets in .27 caliber, I'd have to make my own. The swaging dies, alone, would cost more than the entire rifle build; and then I'd still need swaging materials and a press.
There's a strong chance that I may be entering the custom bullet making business.... if so, you buy the dies, I'll make the bullets.
You do seem to like that big-bore stuff.
One of the best parts about my theoretical cartridge (the .243Pfleuger
) is that it requires essentially no special tools or parts.
First thing I need to do is cut down a case and check it's weight and water capacity so I know where I'm going with it.
Still happily answering to the call-sign Peetza.
The problem, as you so eloquently put it, is choice.
