I've known about this board for over a year now and have read a lot of interesting ideas for wildcats here, especially the Tmag. Figured it was about time to join in on the fun, though I know I'm more than a day late to the party.
I've been a fan of the 7.62x25 since I found out about it in the early 90's when I was stationed up in Alaska. I now have 2 Russian made TT-33's (1946 and 1952 models) and an early 50's CZ52. After reading about the Tmag I want to set up an AR-15 for it and maybe convert a 30 Carbine Ruger Blackhawk to it too. I'm also toying with doing the same general idea with the 9x25 Dillon (using 10mm Magnum brass instead of regular 10mm brass). I have a Ruger Blackhawk 357/9mm convertible that I would like to set up for that one too.
One last project I'm looking in to at the moment is a 358 wildcat for the AR-15 platform using 6.8 SPC brass. I've read discussions about using 357 Herrett dies and reamer but short chambering it so it's overall length with fit in the standard magazine. Not sure which way I'm going to go with this one.
Anyhow, thanks to everyone that's posted here about their wildcats and what they did to bring them from concept to existence. Lots if great info.
Hey Ruppster, Welcome to the forum. We did the Tmag just because one day I pooched a chamber and then went to my wildcat drawer and pulled out the 9mm Mag / Tok brass. Its a nice little round but don't know if it will grow any legs or not. Then we did the same thing with the 357 Sig with 10mm Mag brass. Again, kind of a round looking for a purpose. We do the 30 Herrett Rimless with 6.8 brass and short chambered Herret reamers to fit. I think its the best 30 cal out there. Check out AR Performance, they have a lot more info on it. Our 358 is a short chambered 35 Remington and of course the 357 Mag / Max rimless. A converted Blackhawk would be pretty cool. Keep us posted
