I knew Ed hubel in the 2000's. I had one of the earlier 585 nyati based wildcats over at accuratereloading.com when the internet was starting out in the late 1990's. There were a few of us getting them done, a couple of Aussies, yanks and quite a few scandinavians suprisingly. At that point the 577 Trex was still the most powerful as it used a larger case head than the nyati designs, unless you went to a full 3.25" nyati case length( which bertrams came in as basic cylindrical) you couldn't get to trex capacity and I dont think anyone went that long as you were running into magazine length problems in big bore actions. I think a Nyati ran about 185 grains water capacity with 1.8" length to case mouth, the 3" versions about 200, the Trex always ran about 215-22grains. This also depended on the brass thickness. The short nyati would max out around 2550fps with 750 grain, mine would theoretically run about 2620 from a 25" barrel. The fastest I ever saw a Trex pushed live was by the americans Mitch carter and safari hunter Dan mcartney at about 2600fps but the trex still had gas in the tank. I think 2700fps would have been doable.

Then Ed hubel arrived in the early 2000's and blew us all of of the water with his designs. His orginal calibres were 458's from memory on extra long basic brass, then he worked up everything from 585's to helping Rob garnick(inventor of the 600 overkill) with high pressure 12ga on BMG brass, then to 4 bore nitros on 20mm vulcan brass. I also corresponded with him when he was developing 10 bore loads from regular shotguns. That is pushing roundballs using original style brass cases to about 4000ftlbs energy like the old blackpowder 10 bore elephant guns. I think the powder was vihtavurori N110 and it kept pressures within shotgun levels (with strong shotguns) but dont quote me( or try this at home!).My memory is fuzzy but I seem to recall Ed's marketing figures for the 585 hubel were taken using a very long barrel.... I think I once asked him on the forums the actual case capacity to mouth and dont seem to think it was actually more than some 577trex brass. I sold him a bunch of 585 cases and old 585 dies at one point and a few of us suggested he needed to select one of his big game cartridge , get it made into a nice safari gunand really market it. The monster franken-guns are interesting but most were prototypal and the average person would not be able to get them up and running. I left the shooting sports for almost a decade, good to see he did well with the 585 in that regard and turned into a more mainstream wildcat. He is the king of bigbore guys.
