I have been lurking on this site for awhile learning everything I can about the .277 Wolverine. I have found this forum to have a ton of information about the Wolvy as well as some amazing wildcats and some of the most dedicated supporters of any caliber on the internet. Congrats on all the hard work put in by all to further along the interest of so many other wildcatters like myself. Thanks again!
I have been shooting wildcats and others for a number of years and this will fill in nicely for the grain range of the Wolvy. I shoot and love the .20 Practical with 32-40 grainers and it is amazingly accurate. Then I shoot the .223 for 50-69 grains. Picked up the 6.5 Grendel before it was SAAMI certified and enjoyed it as my deer gun with 123 gr. A max. Then I fell for the 6mm Grendel, .243lbc, 6mmAR, or 6mm Predator or whatever you would like to call it. Amazingly accurate and flat shooting out to distance with 87-95 grain rounds.
I would hate to have to pick one as they all have their place. I seem to have the Wolvy itch and ordered a barrel from Mark @ MDWS, brass from Starline and bullets from Midway,I hope they all come in soon. 
I have a prairie dog or predator hunt on my bucket list for 2018 and I hope to get my Wolvy broken in and shooting by then.
Respectfully,
Trapper   ( yep real first name. )

Trapper - no, can't say that I did; most of my shooting was on the farm or at Ft. McPherson.

Hello from South Dakota. Like others I've been lurking in the shadows, picking up ever bit of info I can.  The knowledge that is available here is impressive.
I finally got my rifle all together late last year.I really like the ho she  shoots, was to late to use it on my goat hunt in Oct. Just like to say thanks and if I can't find answers to my questions I know I can just ask. 277 hunt christmas 124.jpg

Welcome to the forum from Texas. The worst part of the wildcats is trying your best to wait patiently by the mailbox for things to arrive.
