A bigger caliber won't necessarily get you any more usable distance..

    Well it looks like we have two threads on this now but I will stay with the one I started, A member of another forum just talked with a guy named Zach Waterman of Nosler and he Quoted that they will use a 1 in 8 twist in order to utilize heavy bullets..

    Any possibility that they'll introduce some heavier accubonds or ballistic tips if this round takes off?

    That's a lot of opinion. Based on what?

    Maybe I should have taken a more definitive approach with my statement. Something along the lines of:

    "Care to back that statement up with some sort of factual basis?"
