I'm going to give Blue dot another chance
So I plan on picking some brains while the getting is good!

>45 Win Mag

Is there a bullet shape that wildey's like/don't like ? I have XTPs in 200, 230,and 250gr.

-I have zero experience with 45 Win Mag but my Wildey's in the other 3 calibers seem to feed everything.  Wildey's come with excellent magazines.

Is it true Blue Dot works better with Heavier bullets for a given caliber and works better at higher loadings?

-I would talk to Alliant on that but Blue Dot is a faster burning Magnum Powder and they all seem to work best at high pressures

Is it also temperature sensitive (I've read). In Montana it can get damn cold!

-Ask Alliant, I do not know.

WLP primers, are they really regular and magnum at the same time?

-Winchester Primers are designed to light Winchester Ball Powders and they are hot primers.


Do gas settings for .475, .45wm, and .44amp fall within separate ranges?  

-I have found that Wildey's like Auto Mags are all different.  Start low and work up.

Thanks for your input, David
   

I will answer what I know in red.

Thanks Beemer1,

I'll try the 250gr XTP (.452") With 16gr Bluedot , WLP, 1.480 COL (Hornady 10th)

Those are some robust magazines, however of the four I have, three
fit so tight I can't use them. I'll work on that down the road.

About an ideal plinking load,  I'm going to just use Trailboss with the gas closed off.

Less fuss, cleaner, pleasant to shoot, and my brass will thank me for it.

I never gave it any thought to call Alliant about anything. Didn't think they enjoy that sort of thing.

On AutoMags: what is a FE and a CE. How many here are waiting in line or prepaid for one?

I'll wait for the .45 wm version.

Thanks again, David

The 250 gr XTP's are a revolver bullet with a cannelure.  With the Wildey you won't be crimping into it so I would load out to a COL of 1.58".

The FE's are Founder's Edition Auto Mags and the CE's are Classic Editions.

Good luck with your plinking load.  I guess I just never wanted a 4# plinking gun with a 10" barrel.

Hi Beemer, Could you imagine plinking with a snub-nose .38 ? When I say "hey kids let's take the glock
out and go plinking" I get something back like " knock yourself out gramps". Sure everybody likes .22 for plinking , but not everybody likes the blast wave from the jerk who brought the full power magnum.

For 20 cents a round, I can shoot either 9mm or .45wm.  No brainer

But more importantly, Hats off to you!!! The Blue Dot does what you and MR. Moore say is does.

I don't know what I did wrong before. It's the way to go.

Btw, Hornady lists 300 gr XTP for .45 winmag and they have 2 canelures , go figure.

 I saw your last post about the 250gr XTP too late.

250gr worked great
230gr worked great
Going out today with 200gr

Hi Deaf1, What city is stamped on the frame, caliber on barrel, and length of barrel?

I just bought an almost new leather wildey shoulder holster with mag pouch for a 10in
wildey for about $100.00  and I'm glad I did, They don't come up very often. David

What you said...and never that cheap, either!! Normally, in an auction, close to $300 is the norm. Often more. Same with LAR Grizzly holsters.-------def1, do a search for Wildey on this forum, I know theres a bit of info right here. Besides Wikipedia and Blue Book of gun Values, not sure where to direct you. A general web search should find some magazine articles. Might be able to go on Guns and Ammo directly if you subscribe. I assume you have an owners manual or have found a copy online...its a "must have". Good luck and enjoy the gun!

A follow up on the Wildey 44 AMP barrels now being made.  I ordered a 12 " the first week in July with an approximate delivery of 6 months.

I emailed them the other day and they are in process and I was told to expect delivery in April/May.Cry

Hi Beemer, It's funny you should bring that up. Just a few days ago
my 10" 45 WinMag high buff barrel assembly arrived. It took a little 
over 8 months. Jessica originaly told me 6 to 8 weeks. While I waited
patiently for that, I had placed several other orders for parts with no problems.

Deaf1, You will want to get to know Jessica at USA Firearms (the Wildey people).
You'll sleep better at night knowing you have plenty of spare parts for an somewhat
rare pistol.

A few other things:


1. Pulling and holding the slide back (for disasembly) will feel 
like setting a bear trap.

2. Asembly will feel much the same exept for you'll need 3 hands :)

3. You reload right?

4. For many, the older wildeys are fussy. And I mean FUSSY.

5. Your pistol will turn heads and Most people will ask you about your "AutoMag"
No Kidding!

6. When you take your Wildey to the range, in exchange for letting them
fire off a few shots, They will let you fire their Desert Eagle, S&W 500,
Colt python, Wilson Combat 1911, Thompson M1A1, ect...
Everybody Wins, So bring some extra ammo.

7. I feel you will never be able to trust your life to a Wildey Magnum Pistol.

8. The double-action trigger stinks

It doesn't sound like it but I love mine!
David
