Nice selection of .408 CT. The pictue of the headstamps was a little small to read them easily. Any chance of a larger picture or at least a listing of what they are? Also, bullet weights if known>

Didn’t receive any projo weight data when the rounds were provided to me. I scanned the cartridges and headstamps in high resolution, so if you download the photo, as opposed to look at the thumbnail, you’ll be surprised at the detail.


Had not thought od saving the image and then enlargeing it in Photoshop, but your right, that will work.

The rounds, left to right, are headstamped as follows:

.408 CheyTac XM-1
.408 CheyTac XM-1 (dummy - no primer)
.408 CheyTac XM-2 (note larger font)
.408 CheyTac XM-2 (moly coat(?) 305 gr bullet)
.408 CheyTac XM-2 (moly coat(?) 419 gr bullet)
.408 CheyTac XM-2 (dummy - no primer; 419 gr bullet)
408 Chey Tac Jamison (419 gr bullet)
408 Chey Tac Jamison (dummy AP loading with TC core)
408 C.T. TTI (darkened case, sub-sonic loading) Round weighs 48.7 g.
408 C.T. TTI (heavy bullet)
408 C.T. TTI (light bullet)

As I understand it, TTI loadings are considered more an after-market product as the company (Cheyanne Tactical) did not develop these loadings and they are not part of the ballistic computer program.

Note the evolution of rim thickness/ectractor groove profile.
