What is the best shoulder angle for a cartridge???
The IQ and the life expectancy of the average American recently passed each other in opposite directions.

Which cartridge?

Hard to say when straight-walled cartridges are still relevant. Same goes for tapered and rimmed. Necking a parent cartridge down has always been a norm, then someone couldn't read their micrometer very well so rims and belts had to go and seating on the shoulder became a rage. Those tapers of shoulder angle are like noses, someone always has a slicker booger. If there is one thing Roy Weatherby proved without a doubt, it was changing the angle offered no discernable difference.
...oh yeah! thats gonna hurt!

The standard 308 angle 20deg? Works pretty slick, hard to improve on that. One of the factors in determining what chambering to make my new build at Hart was ease of feeding. I was gonna have a 260AI or 7mm08AI, but after talking to Jim and Jack at Hart I decided to just go with a standard 7mm08. The 40deg shoulder angle of the AI makes the jump out of the magazine pretty significant. My 284 Win with the 35deg shoulder takes more force to feed a new round in. It doesn't sound like much, and in all honestly it really isn't a huge factor, but the 1 in 1000 time it acts up is when you are staring down a good buck or bull.
