I just sent Gunwerks an email with a link to this thread asking them to please give us some details on this new cartridge.

Re: 6.5 slrm

The 6.5 SLRM is a short version of our 7LRM necked down to accept 6.5mm bullets. The design goal was 3050 with a 140 in a short action without high pressure loading. You can make this cartridge from RCM brass with a little work moving the shoulder back. We will probably test in "wildcat" state for another 6-8 months, then we will order up the correct brass.

Will be the same as the 6.5 SAUM(4S) by GAP.
