did anyone notice that The Claws 577 T-Rex has a shoulder but the cartridge in the other photos did not??
Methinks there is a plot afoot my dear watson Grin Grin


Just looked back on that Muzr. My round is definately a 577 t-rex A square round (according to the headstamp anyway). I reckon that other round is a 700 Nitro?

He doesn't... There has been one made in NZ for an oversea's customer (don't know anything more about this thought). There was a thread in the long range section about it - I think it was called 14.5mm longranger (or something similar)

The joy of wildcat cartridge collecting is that just cos the headstamp says ".577 T-REX " it doesnt mean thats what you have....

Identifying wildcat cartridges is the hardest task , so many are made by one guy for his rifle , but they are still legitimate calibres in their own right . I probably have a couple of hundred wildcats , but can only positively identify 2/3rds of them  Undecided.There are a few good books on wildcats , handy to have but usually expensive to buy.

The most impressive Wildcats I have would probably be the .725 Jongmans or the .600 Overkill if you are into big bores...  Smiley
