30 WARE WOLF

HBR (Hunter Bench Rest) class cartridge named for gunsmith Stan Ware, it is basically a 308 Winchester case shortened .165", retaining the 20-degree shoulder angle but with the neck shortened .025" resulting in a C/L of 1.830". It is very similar in appearance to the older 30 x 47 benchrest cartridge and even older 308 x 1.850" wildcat. There was an article in IAA Journal 447 (Jan/Feb 2006)
