    Probably more like muzzle jump rather than climb!

    Thanks for posting this project, it is very interesting.

    Here is picture of the 12ga wad column using two
    BPI BPGS seals, Flexseal,cork, and sabot. Bret in
    MN has, in a long heavy rifled barreled Savage
    like mine, gotten 28-3000 fps with a 500 gr XTP bullet
    in the sabot with a 3.5" plastic case. And it extracts
    ok with the Savage bolt action extractor.
    He is using slow shotgun powder, Alliant Steel.I can't
    get that high in my NEF 12GA FH and make the
    extractor work with the Alliant Steel powder loads.
    The NEF handles pressures fine, just doesn't extract
    like a bolt action Savage 210. Using RE17 without cork,
    I get 28-2900, with max of much slower RE17 with 420gr
    slug in the sabot, in NEF The case shown was fired with the
    RE17 load like that....Ed

    Here is picture of NEF I've set up with my
    700H 3.25" belted case to show the versatility
    of NEFs and my 700. The 700 cal barrel monoblocked
    like I did the 585HE. I put monblocked barrel on
    the same SB2 frame that I have my 12GA FH on as
    it has the beefed up firing pin for big primers
    use in our 12GA FH case and in my 700H case.

    Other projects coming.I found a heavy 16ga barrel
    to monoblock in one to test the 16GA FH cartridge
    I made. It is the 3.5" brass case mentioned
    earlier in the thread.

    Also a bunch of us are going to take 500 S&W
    NEFs and put my 499 HE case in them, with just a
    chamber job. It is a case that will get the zip
    in 500gr slugs. NEFs are great guns to experiment
    with and along with reasonable costs, we don't
    have to worry about case length. Ed

    Here is picture of a falling block a guy on Weaponsforum
    has picked up to finish. The fellow who started building
    it laid it aside for awhile and the new guy is going to finish
    in BMG. It has 50cal bbl on it. Looks easily big enough
    for 12ga,10ga,8ga, my 700s. The lever on left is cocking
    mechanism, The tube in back is a firing striker and spring
    and it hits the hammer block you see in the back of the
    breach block, which hits firing pin ahead of it in breach.
    It is the the only one like it. They've put a lot of work
    into it, especially the hammer block striker setup.Ed

    In related big bore work we got a Montana Rifle
    Co, PH action setup in my 700H 3.25" case. Fired
    test load of 825gr at 3000 fps. This was just one
    test load. Normal max loads are 825gr at 2850 and
    1000gr at 2700.Hunting loads 24-2500, First PH fired
    outside the factory.It is in first picture.
    PH will work for any big case and my 585HE.And
    if anyone looking at big actions for 12ga FH,
    here is picture of MRC PH with a 3.5" 12ga case
    partly into action. The PH cam be used for 12ga with
    action and rails opened like I did my 700H in Enfield.
    And a little changing on the bolt face and extractor
    In 12 ga it still would have 60% of front lugs contacting
    and you'd add bearing lug surface to bolt handle base so
    it would handle same pressures as Savage 210.
    And 3.5" with average length 12ga slug would feed from the
    magazine. Our longer case would work with port opened
    and some mag work. Ed

    Got single stack mag figured out for 12GA FH and
    my 700H 3.25 in PH. I fit a bolt action 12ga
    box mag and its follower and spring
    inside the PH mag box. Easy to fit in metal box,
    and permanently mounted to metal and floorplate.
    Holds 2 down. That way feed lips already a working
    design. And opened back of 12ga box for longer case
    like I did with my 700 in Savage 210. Also work
    for anyone doing a PH in 12ga FH if they aren't
    loaded too long or with 3.5" RMC cases. Using most
    cast 12ga bullets like Dixies, the overall length with
    3.5 brass is 3.9" and fits 4.05" box ok. Here is picture
    PH from bottom showing its big size.You can see in pic
    there still is room to make box longer yet.
    And the feed port can be longer.Montana Rifle has
    great action here with lots off room and strength.Ed

    Ed that box mag sounds interesting! I still haven't sent my Ultra barrel to Rob to get it reamed - just too busy with everything else right now to pay attention. The public range opens back up in September, and I am really wanting to pop off some rounds then.

    I got barrel on the 4ga/bore falling block gun.
    Barrel 32" long, 1.87" breech, gun is 27 lbs.
    Notice breech block is down and huge hole in barrel.
    Maybe shoulder cannon is the right term for it.
    It is all inleted into thumbhole laminated Vulcan
    50 cal stock, of which I need more, if anyone
    knows where there are any. 4 bore cases shown,
    next to the gun, 2 with 2000gr slugs,
    and I'll use a big ammomaster press for them..Ed

    Here is a picture of the front end of the 4bore,
    showing a 2000gr slug protuding out. Simulating
    stop action photo work, as if anyone wwould be brave
    enough to put a camera out in front of it
    when it fired. Will have it firing by fall.
    I plan on using hollowbase lead slugs of
    about 1600gr, as it is a smoothbore. Ed
