Winchester\'s New Super Short Magnums

How do you guys feel about the new announcements by Winchester of 223 and 243 Winchester Super Short Magnums. How do feel they will perform.

Re: Winchester\'s New Super Short Magnums

I like the concept, however those necks are WAY too short. Oh, well. Time will tell as to how well they shoot.

The 223 claims 220 Swift velocities and trajectories. Seems to be rewriting an old story. But, would like to see how it performs.
