Easiest .500 for a M98

I have a bit of a desire to build a small .500 cal rifle on a M98 action. I am not looking for huge speeds, around 2200-2300fps or a bit more with 450's.

So far there are a few rounds I have been looking at they are the .510 Whisper, 500 Whisper, 500 AccRel and the 510 WSM. Who here has one of these, that run them supersonic? Are they easy to make feed?

Bruce Bertram in Australia played with a short cased .500 a year or two back. He might be a good source of information

Can't the 500 Jeffery be built on an M98 action?

I would chop off a 300 RUM and use that; headspace on the mouth. Like a fat 450 Bushmaster. Reamer? Use a RUM reamer with a sharp mouth. Throat separately.

Michael458's 500 MDM is what I would do. It's built on a 300 RUM case. He has components, dies, and tons of load info. I can put you in touch with him if you'd like.

Mods and feeding would be the issue I would be most concerned about $ wise. I would think a single stack detachable magazine to help feed the 1/2” beast would be my worry.

Think of a set up like the 425WR for the games keepers for culling.
