Default Re: Coindicence or by design?

Paul, good to see you're back among us. Hope you had a good time visiting the kids. ......I'm not particularly planning on making anything from the .500 or .460 S&W cases but a few years ago I was seriously considering the .500 for a stubby 6.5 cartridge in the Peabody Enfield I've been piddling with for several years. Still haven't worked on it any more in a few years but this summer I intend to finish it one way or another & chamber it for the 6.5-30 AI. If I'm not happy with the velocity I want I can always go with the 6.5-243 AI in a slightly modified form or the 6.5-257 Roberts AI. The barrel is only 22 inches long though. .......I have around 50 cases necked to 6.5 from .500 S&W cases. Best I remember they hold around 50 grains of water. Just too much trouble to draw them to 6.5 caliber. .......Paul H
