    I'll leave the ad for posterity sake.


    So here it is, This is a piece of history. After WWII two brothers went to work building rifles. Wildcat cartridges are the ancestor of many of today's modern rounds.

    It was built in the early 50's by the Juenke brothers out of NV on a Springfield 1903 action built by Remington in 1942. They put a HEAVY barrel on it chambered in .219 ICL Wolverine, and laid it into a really nice beaver tail stock, with a nice high cheek weld. Both the stock and barrel are stamped with date and initials. I talked to one of the brothers via email while I was in Afghanistan, and then again by phone when I got home. At that point one brother had already died, I spoke to Vern, but the last I heard (2011) He was very sick and his wife would no longer even send calls through. They were both WWII vets.

    So, 219 ICL Wolverine is an improved zipper. 30-30 cartridge necked down to .222. It's only been taken to the range once since I got it, it puts rounds through the same hole at 100 yards, really amazing. The barrel looks brand new, so I know it has not been shot much, as the old wildcats used to shoot the barrels out.

    Asking $900 or trade for Semi Auto Shotgun, Optics, Ammo, Semi Pistols? What have you got?


    Thanks for looking.

    How much brass do you have with it and do you have any reloading dies for making new brass? Thanks!

    There's the catch. I have one shell and no dies. All that I know is that the shells were fire formed 219 zipper shells.

    Vern Juenke is still alive, if only barely. The Accuracy Den(the Juenke's NV shop) appears to be no longer in business. You have a very nice rifle there. While loaded cartridges and info may be rare, they are out there. I believe this cartridge is especially designed for 45gr. .224 bullets and works them up to about 3,700fps. A beautiful rifle. Good luck.

    Well good to hear that, he sure was a neat old guy to talk to. I saw in an Ackley book three different loads, 40, 45, and 50gr IIRC. Thanks, all the more info I get the better.

    Hmmm, I can not for the life of me find my sheet of paper with the case specs for the wolverine...I know it's off of the zipper, and I dont know how close to the wasp it really is.

    Back to the top. I went to Medford and got it out of the safe and up here in Tigard, so much easier to show now.
