480_331_csupload_54220996                       In 2005 the concept of B&M rifles and Cartridges was born. I had worked with SSK Industries on a few projects by this time, and was very impressed with the quality of the work done, and the care that was put into getting the job done correct. It was only natural that I turn to SSK for the B&M Rifles and Cartridges. Little did I know at the time how popular the Rifles and Cartridges would become, but I knew I would not sacrifice the quality and integrity of the rifles, nor my reputation. I decided early to make the B&M Rifles & Cartridges proprietary to SSK Industries. I knew I could trust SSK to always build a quality product, and put quality ahead of anything else. I consider the B&M Rifles as “Dangerous Game Rifles”, there is no room for anything but the very highest of quality, they must feed and function 100%, and they absolutely must work when you need them most.   I trust no one other than SSK Industries to be able to give us this level of confidence. They have the experience, the know how, and the determination to make all this possible, and all at a very reasonable price for the high quality product you will receive. B&M rifles are short, handy, and extremely fast on target. The standard B&M Cartridges are 9.3 B&M, 416 B&M, 458 B&M, 475 B&M and 50 B&M, all based on a 2.240 inch RUM case, and all based on Winchester M70 WSM bolt actions barrels from 18-20 inches depending on your desires, and the efficiency of the cartridge. Most 50 B&Ms are based on 18 inch barrels. These rifles and cartridges provide incredible horsepower for their size. Fully capable of stopping the largest of Dangerous Game in their tracks! The B&M Super Short Series of rifles are based on Winchester M70 WSSM actions, 16.25 inch barrels and come in 50 B&M Super Short 475 B&M Super Short, and 458 B&M Super Short. These cartridges are based on a 1.65 inch WSM case. They are truly short and handy little rifles at 36 inches overall length, and weigh 6.25 lbs. There is nothing else like them. The big bore heavy hitter is the 500 MDM. Based on a Winchester M70 RUM action, and using a full 2.8 inch RUM case, being .500 caliber this rifle comes with a 20 inch barrel. While it has tremendous performance capabilities, it still remains a small rifle for its punch. Currently there are several of these in use by Professional Hunters for Dangerous Game. Being a Lever Action enthusiast, we could not leave the lever guns out, JD assisted with the design of the 50 B&M Alaskan. This cartridge is yet another of our .500 caliber cartridges, based on a 50 Alaskan case, which is .510 actual. The 50 B&M Alaskan is merely sized down from .510 to .500, easily done in the sizing die. Size and shoot. It’s just that easy. The 50 B&M Alaskan calls a Marlin 1895 or Winchester/Browning M71 home. Typical rifles have 18 inch barrels. Conversions of any Marlin 1895 chambered in 45/70 are relatively simple to do, and the increase of caliber over 45/70 is substantial in the field. This cartridge also can be used in a Ruger #1 or Winchester M1885. JD has several Encore and Contenders done in the 50 B&M Alaskan as well. It is a very popular cartridge, and very easy to work with. SSK Industries can handle your B&M Rifle as they have the reamers, the know-how, and the experience to make it a reality.
