In 2007, a new family of wildcats came out of the APS shop. The design goal of these wildcats was to offer a very high level of performance in the 257, 6.5mm, 270, 300, 338 and 375 calibers but do so in a package that offered measurably longer barrel life then their Allen Magnum siblings in the same calibers. Many potential customers had shown great interest in the Allen Magnum wildcats but expressed some concern about barrel life and the shear extreme performance level of these wildcats. The Allen Xpress line of wildcats was designed to offer a high performance option those that do not need or want the extreme performance level of the Allen Magnums. Even though the Allen Xpress wildcats are slightly less potent then their Allen Magnum siblings, they are still at the very top of the performance ladder compared to all other commerical and wildcat chamberings.
