    Default SAAMI approval process

    I would like to find out if there is process that a custom or wildcat rifle cartridge has to go through so that it can be approved by SAAMI? Just spoke with a rifle barrel manufacturer and now I am wondering about this process since the company stated they will not chamber custom or wildcat cartridges until the cartridge has been approved by SAAMI. Thanks

    Default SAAMI info

    This doesn't really answer your question, but does provide some information on the SAAMI process and history.

    The short answer is that only member companes can submit a cartridge to SAAMI for standardization. An individual would have to get 'sponsorship' by one of these member companies. The cost of testing and developing the required information to standardize a cartridge is beyond most small shops.
