Re: Laupua - 300 WM

Sorry Tom,

but there's nothing in the works on a 300 WM case. Bad info, if someone told you there was. It's been discussed, most recently at the SHOT show, and will be again in a few weeks at the IWA show, but there's a lot of other things on the burners ahead of anything like this.

Sorry 'bout that!

Re: Laupua - 300 WM

Is it true about the 260 rem brass though? (fingers crossed!)

Re: Laupua - 300 WM

The 260 is a fact, has been formally introduced (at the SHOT show, there's a video clip available on 6mmBR.com). The first shipment is somewhere between Finland and the US East coast as we speak. Barring intercession by U-boats, Somali pirates or sea monsters, it'll be here in a few weeks.

Hang on, it's coming!

Re: Laupua - 300 WM

I'm giddy with excitement ! But then I remember I live in the uk and realise I'll be lucky to see any this year !

Don't worry about the u boats , the royal navy sunk them all after we recovered the enigma machine.

Somali pirates can be dealt with by the judicious application of HMG fire .

Sea monsters , I'm afraid your on your own!

Ah, the U-110, and with all due kudos to the intrepid crew of the HMS Bulldog, if memory serves correctly. And by the way, apologies for that Hollywood abomination, "U-571" while we're at it. Some of us over here, at least those with some appreciation for history, were as appalled with that one as you guys probably were. We captured an Enigma as well, but much later in the war. June 5th, 1944, from the U-505 off the coast of N. Africa. Been on board that boat, and it now resides in the Chicago Museum of Science and Industry. One of the very few decent reasons to visit that city, I might add. Yeah, I'm a WWII sub buff and history fanatic.

Give me a shout if the 260s don't turn up in due time. I don't deal with the UK, but I can ask the folks who do, no problem.
