.475 Wildey Magnum

.475 Wildey Magnum
Warning! Notes: The Wildey is a very heavy handgun designed to handle breech pressures exceeding 48,000 psi. Due to its size and weight, usefulness will most likely be limited to hunting and some sport shooting. Accuracy has proven to be outstanding. Five-shot, 25-yard groups consistently average less than 1 inch. Ballistics are also impressive, with 100-yard remaining energies exceeding 44 Magnum muzzle energy. Load data from Wildey indicates that 18 grains of Blue Dot powder should be used with a 300-grain jacketed bullet. With that load, a 300-grain Barnes JSP gives an impressive muzzle velocity of 1,610 fps with a muzzle energy of 1,727 foot-pounds. (Cartridges of the World 10th Edition)
