So I'm waiting for the wife to get ready to town. Putting on make up, and spraying and brushing and buffing and tuning and as I'm waiting... I find a .30-378WBY round laying on the table.
So I'm looking at this erormus cartridge and remembering the kick you can get from it. What if I took this basic cartridge and put a .50 bullet on it? So I get to thinking more about it and begin to research how and who had this idea before me... I find that Ackley put a .375 on a .50BMG case, but no 50-378WBY out there. What do I need a 50 cal for you ask? Simple. I do not have a 50 cal rifle (not counting the smokepoles or the 50-110 Winchester that I don't shoot much..it's old, It's not a field gun anymore).
Who knows, There may be some Mastodon still out there somewhere that needs hunted, and why not be prepared for the occasion? Ok, but would you believe an Elephant in Africa?
Any one have any info on a 50 cal on a 378WBY?
