I know a secret...

Any idea what new cartridges are coming for 2005? Big Red has two, not sure about Big Green yet tho but hear that they also have something coming.
Will let you guys in on some info shortly, going to shoot something this coming week that is quite interesting. Was told "If I tell you - I have to kill you..." a few weeks ago. But now the press releases are being written and some lucky dudes are going to play...

Just for fun - what do you think Winchester might be coming out with for 2005?
Any guesses for Remington?

    i heard that winchester might release
    a 2.5 inch length short mag case.. i
    think first will be in .338. i cant remember
    what other calibers it will be in. I have also heard that hornady is working on a smaller .17 centerfire.. THey were messing
    with the .30 carbine case.. i know james
    calhoon had just made a .19 caliber based
    on that case.. He is going to offer formed
    brass for 22 cents each..

    Remington - Maybe a 6.5 SAUM and / or a 338 SAUM. Probably wishful thinking.

    Please let us know when you can tell us without having to kill us.

    What do you mean, Lapua already makes brass for the 6.5-284?

    I am hoping sako is right. Someone other than sako (not knocking sako, just want a different configuration) needs to chamber a rifle in 6.5-284. Yes, I love the thought of the 6.5 SAUM.

    Hornady also makes 6.5-284 brass.
    I keep hearing that the SAUM is titters.
    One of the new cartridges is NOT a WSSM necked down to .204, but would that be a screamer!
