Having nothing but Nosler brass for a barn burner magnum kinda sucks, since the heads are so soft (norma, I'm looking at you guys).
Yes, they did submit it to SAAMI in June. I didn't realize that opened it up to everyone... learn something new everyday.
By the descriptions, it sounds like it's going to be very similar to a necked down 300 Dakota.
If know one makes the rifle, it will surely have a short life expectancy. No doubt there will be Nosler brass for it at Nosler prices. A little too soft for me, based on what I've read. If it was a little tougher, I would pay for it.
Hmm... I wonder what Nosler is planning for availability and marketing?
