    Not sure I would go with a rimless and a straight walled case. Has to be headspaced off the case mouth. A staight case based off the 308 win would be a rimless 444 Marlin.

    Drm50 ,

    I would consider a 40-70 Sharps Straight if it meets overall length requirements of Ohio. I think you can use .405 Win. brass or 30/40 Krag or .303 British brass. I am sure not everybody in your areas will have one. I know these are not rimless cases.

    Or you could get 40-65 brass straight from Starline

I'm going to hit some manuals like PO Ackleys.
    Anyone have wildcats of 38 to 40 cal based on rimless cases that would meet the straight case regulation. The #1 will allow me spitzer bullets and generous OAL of cartridge. Actually .357" is legal. I got interested in Win 350 until I found out it was a 223 case blown out. I thought is was going to be a 35 cal version of 375Win. kind of a super sized 357 max. Any info appreciated, a wildcat on a rimless case wouldn't be anymore PIA than a 405 when it comes to brass & bullets.
    Dmr50,

    The 375 Win is hard to beat. Many bullet options. You get a wide variety of weights, bullet design, jacketed, and cast options. In a single shot you do not need to worry about OAL for cycling. You can shoot a 300 + gr cast bullet easily. You can load up for flat shooting hunting, shoot heavy cast long range, or load cast light mild loads for target practice or family fun with trail boss.

    The 375 Win brass is constructed for peppy loads. Your action is also designed for the higher pressure cartridges. The 375 Win may be the best design for all shooting sports for you with the Ruger #1 action. Oh, Starline makes 357 Win brass.

    I know, not rimless. However, for a few $'s the smith or barrel mfg can alter the extractor to fit. Easier to take off material than fabricate new for more length.

    I thought that the 40-65 was based on the .45/70 case necked down to .40 cal. which would make it a bottle neck case.

    It doesn't have a shoulder. Is a tapered case considered a straight wall case?

    In Iowa with their Mickey Mouse rules a tapered case is not a straight case. I don't know about other states.
