I totally agree! I am the same way when it comes to something different. However I ain't smart enough to make my own wildcat. Here's a couple that I built. Caution! Not a Camaro.I am both a contrarian and a Luddite. I have no interest in what everybody else has in this regard. Yes, I know I cannot discuss apples to apples with the gents who shoot the mass-produced cartridges. But that is where I take my satisfaction: In doing something unusual and borne of my own mind. I never had a late-1960s Camaro with a small-block Chevy sportin' an Edelbrock intake, carburetor, cam kit and Hooker headers-- also known as a "cookie-cutter" Camaro. I built a 1978 Mustang II that would smoke the tires and very easily garner me reckless driving tickets if I failed to see Smokey Bear before he saw me. One time I didn't; paid for that one on my record for five years.
Shooting what everybody else shoots to me, is boring. Why not find a new way to enjoy the sport, and have something unique? I think that those who cling to "what we have now" with regard to cartridges are not motivated to think beyond the confines of their own imaginations. We live in the United States. We have the Individual Liberty, granted unto us by God, to own firearms and to build a firearm if we so desire. I want something I cannot just go to Scheels and buy off the racks. It's a challenge to make things all come together when you're dealing with the folks who turn-out the retail stuff before they get to the custom-made stuff. I waited a year for Lee Precision to even get to my neck-only dies and FCD dies for my previous two mildcats back about 2013 or 2014. But when they did finally arrive, they were pricelessly-beautiful examples of six-axis CNC machining. Worth the wait, and I really enjoyed using them for the exact purposes for which I designed and desired them...
I was just pulling your leg; I couldn't resist. The only "X" I know about in guns is the X-Bolt bolt-action rifle by Browning. I have no idea which outfit made that bolt. I was just being a richard-head when I said it was an X-Bolt. I humbly request your forgiveness...REALLY? Thank you so much! Browning is a nice name in my book as I still have my browning hi point 9
Not hard at all! I can say that after having done two.However, I ain't smart enough to make my own wildcat.
Oh nooooo, must edit the classifieds where I've quoted you and made a mound of money for the bolt, lol. I think it's actually manufactured by Layke Tactical out of Phoenix. Probably has the name on the full assembly somewhere.I was just pulling your leg; I couldn't resist. The only "X" I know about in guns is the X-Bolt bolt-action rifle by Browning.

Yeah; I purchased them. The problem now is that I cannot find them. I have every other item I purchased yesterday from the several locations I visited-- except the two 20-round magazines. I've looked and looked and looked all over my swingin' bachelor pad. Not seein' it anywhere. Irritates me all to hellsinki. I can't even find the white nylon bag with "Scheels" printed upon it, in bright red lettering. Maybe my billeting is an astronomical singularity-- right in the middle of a small Nevada town. I would have never thought as much...Purchased two each Gen3 MagPul 20-round magazines for M4 carbine, to attach them to the two orphan Ranger Plates remaining from a purchase of several weeks ago.
I found the magazines. I'd placed them behind my radio, which sets on an unused 12V cooler, which sets behind my computer desk. The radio is placed such that I can adjust the volume without having to directy look at the radio. I do not remember ever placing the magazines there when I put the six Ranger Plates onto the Gen2 magazines I already had. The great missing magazine caper of 2020 was predicated upon the human phenomenon that we so often look-- but do not see...Yeah; I purchased them. The problem now is that I cannot find them.
Have been shipped! Ordered them a week ago.Fifty each Peterson Cartridge 0.468 x 2.175 Wildcat Tubes.
