OK. I was just surprised that such a new chambering would already start do diverge so fast.

However, when I updated my QuickDesign model and ran it through QuickLoad the results were even closer to Noslers claims.

Model 48 Patriot Rifle

looks like this one may be a heck of a rifle for the $$ and may not even need a lot of work to get shooting. 26 nos is one of the chamberings and the price point puts it squarely in line with re-working a remmy.

308 holes

I'll be taking my 26 after bear this Saturday. I'm running 140 Accubonds at 3,300 fps. Mine didn't like Barnes bullets but seems OK with Bergers or Accubonds. It also likes US 869. I haven't had time to fine tune a load but 88.5 grains of US 869 behind the 140 Accubond has been doing 1 MOA or better. I don't expect to be shooting past 400 yards on this trip so 1 MOA is good enough for now.

Dies and brass are available but the brass is $2.64 apiece so a deal it is not. Should you buy one? Only you can decide that.
