JW's 6.8x47 is really getting my attention. Name it the 277 Badger, and have brass available from JB.

I like Crazysccrmd's 357 super max magnum! (And his 8x41)
Also I would like to see the 280 British brought to life In an AR if mag space allows. It had great potential if only the Americans did not shoot it down. Or the 280/30 if anyone can get a 800 series bolt to work with.

How about 5.45x39?

Also stock barrels for CZ and Savage rifles. 5.45 dies are available from Lee in lots of 25 each, and Midway has them from RCBS (RCBS seems a little pricey). A lot of 5.45 AR uppers where made to use this round when surplus 5.45 was plentiful, but O'bama had ATF ban the importation of surplus due to steel core since some AK's had been made into pistols.

I have a Bulgy AK74 and Bulgy RPK74 both in 5.45x39, and would love to have an AR & Bolt gun if, and only if I knew reloading supplies were readily available for it with an experienced to discuss it with (such as this group). I do not have any interest is running my three spam cans of stashed steel cased 5.45 surplus through anything but my AK74. Brass cased is where it's at for bolt guns and AR's.

How about 7.5 Swiss barrels for CZ & Savage rifles? And stock 7.5 Swiss dies. It's a great caliber, and I have two Swiss K31 rifles.

Disregard my mentioning CZ rifles above, their centerfires barrels are not easily changed.

I've decided a T/C Dimension bolt action will be a future purchase after spending some time researching quick change bolt action rifles.

Please consider offering TC Dimension barrels in your calibers.

Now a 1:8 twist mongoose varmint contour barrel for a cz may be interesting..
Being that I have a 527 in 223,(1:9) and am planning to do the mongoose.

They are a dandy little mini mauser, and the single set triggers are good.

Yes, 20 Practical AR, Savage, and TC Dimension barrels. 6mm Mongoose and 277 Wolverine barrels for TC Dimension. https://www.tcarms.com/firearms/bolt-action-rifles/dimension/complete-rifles I will SBR a TC Dimension receiver if I can get a 12.5" 277 Wolverine barrel for it.

Yes we do!

We also need some JBFA 6mm Mongoose brass to be available in the near future, and I can see 20 Practical in my future as well. You're gonna have to increase your 5.56 case purchasing, lol.

6x45?
.375 SOCOM?
.458 SOCOM?
The TCU's?
.17-223?
.20 Practical/Tactical?

Right now I like what we have going on with the 277 Wolverine, 6mm Mongoose, 6.5 Mongrel soon, 7.62x40, etc. - all 5.56 based cats.

The 7VAR, 358 Yeti will be a wait with the whole bolt issue going on but we will stock them as well.

What's your wish list?  We will be moving up to the 6.8 case/bolt sized cats in the near future so please think about that one as well.  6mm, 6.5mm, 7mm, 7.62mm.

After we are somewhat satisfied with our 5.56 and 6.8 case variants, will will move up to the AR10 platform cartridges.
I know the 20 practical will be coming after 6mm Mongoose is successful launched, and looking forward to getting a quality 20 Practical barrel from you. Above you mentioned 17-223. How about a 5.56 case wildcat using 17 or 20 pills, with a case length in-between 22TCM and 17 Fireball? I bet you and JW could come up with something nice that shoots fast yet uses less powder than a 17-223. Would something like this cause feeding problems that couldn't be overcome in the AR15 platform?

The problem with .17 is folks have a hard time drilling a straight hole that small.

X-Cal for example doesn't even offer a .17.

Not that other barrel makers don't/won't offer them, just as an example.

If you find a reputable company that will produce custom .17 cal AR barrels, I'm game for getting some done. I have a feeling they are going to be expensive, though.

22 cal is about as small as I would want to worry with. The bores are so small on the 17's that it makes it hard to clean them. I had a 17 hornet for a short while and I hated to clean it. Getting straight barrels for it would be another hurdle. Most folks that make barrels don't like them because of the reject rate due to crooked holes.

That is pretty neat.

You had better luck than I at spreading the 223 case, Ha.

Good job.

The ribs in the mag would pose the biggest issue with that case, I would guess.

That's pretty cool......like a super long 9mm Winchester Magnum.

Unfortunately the forward ribs on a 5.56 mag are going to pinch the front of the cases inward and disrupt the stack. Kinda like the mag issue with the 358 MGP.

Whenever designing an "alternate caliber" for the AR platform or any platform for that matter, you always want to sort out the magazine issues first, before building anything.  Working it out later, is a really bad idea.

Tony, Wilson carries the Lancer mag with the front side ribs milled down for use with the 762x40, or you can "push shave" them down on the Lancer mag's yourself with a steel straight edge. Works like a champ for the larger cal/dia AR rounds.

I would have interest in a 7mm or 6.5 based on the 6.8spc, more so the 7mm but either works.

I made a few of those lol. The head ended up being about .010 smaller than the neck with a bullet set in the case. I even bought a 357 MAX reamer then I figured out this is not going to work very well lol. Should have did a little more research before I bought the barrel blank and reamer.

Pretty sure you'd have to use an expander mandrel to size out the entire case and even then it might still need to be fire formed to achieve the straight wall. I think it's still doable if you want to put in the effort to get the brass formed right and play with magazines. I just made up that dummy as a joke pretty much, then started to think how it might work.

I was thinking about making a cutter for the lathe I use at work to trim the heads on 357 MAX brass. I don't know if there will be enough meat left to hold the pressure. Also should this be a blow back or gas gun. Looking at the cost and availability of brass I gave up on the idea.
