45 Raptor: New Cartridge for a New Platform

From the "when dead is just not good enough . . . it has to be really really dead" Department.

Have you ever looked at your AR-15 and the 458 SOCOM, 450 Bushmaster and thought . . What if I got rid of the R-15 lower and used a DPMS LR-308 or AR-10 lower . . . . . I bet I could shoot through two Moose or 10 hogs . . . . Well . . . I have . . . and finally . . . Someone might have the cartridge for you!

A friend and client, who is a firearms designer and was involved in the 6.5 development, has come up with a new elephant killing hippopotamus stopping round for the AR 10 platform.

The 45 Raptor. It is built on a 308 case. It uses 460 smith and Wesson magnum load data.

This new cartridge uses bullets that weigh from 160gr up to 395gr. The 45 Raptor launches the 160 grain Barnes bullets at 3000 feet per second. Its throws a 200 grain Hornady bullet and twenty seven hundred feet per second.

They have sidestepped the chamber pressure limitations of the ar-15 platform by going to the AR-10 / LR 308 platform.

The cartridges use a modified Lancer l7 magazines. The modifications to the magazines are the insertion of the new follower and the Machine magazine answer which acts as a block to prevent rounds from moving forward and recall.

The rifle itself is pretty much a standard AR 10A or DPMS LR 308.

In general, this cartridge allows the shooter to hold the same point of aim out to 200 yards still have the bullet land in a 6 inch circle

I have not shot it yet. I hope to get to shoot a suppressed example with 500ish gr. Subsonic loads.
