Now its time for me to take on some of the family history please enjoy .
A little family history of my dad Eugene Luft and his cousins Carl and Harry Luft i remember meeting them as a teenager.
The wildcat 30 Luft mag. came out in the late 1930s and rifles made for it up until the late 1950s. It is a 300 H&H mag case blown out, shortened and re-necked to give more power and better performance.
A fairly scarce round, never caught on. Developed by the Luft Bros. Gunsmiths from Spokane, WA. The Luft brothers were gunsmiths in Spokane Washington and worked alot on custom Borchardt rifles in modern cartridges.
The Luft brothers also made a another wildcat, the 333 Express which was very similar to the 333 OKH.All of the old short magnums (Luft, Mashburn, Ackley, O'Neil, Apex, etc) were made from the 300 H&H or 375 H&H since that is all that was available back then. It's not that hard to do but now-a-days you have all the modern brass so why bother? I shoot a 30 Short Ackley Magnum as my HG at 1000 yard NBRSA and I use 300WM brass. The shoulder pushes back without much work and I then trim the extra .010".
Or if you don't like trimming you could start with 338WM or 7mmRM. The Norma 308M works too if you can locate the brass. All of the different brass has different inside dimensions, and therefore capacity, and you can control the final capacity of your Mashburn brass when selecting the parent case.
Luft Brothers in Spokane, WA in the early 1950's to mid-60's. The Luft brothers worked on custom Borchardt rifles but chambered for modern cartridges.
