Yeah, that's not gonna happen... But he's more than welcome to name it whatever he wants. I was only joking about it, because very early in this thread someone made a comment about naming it after me...Then Miles said something else about it today...So I went along with the joke again.You could drop all the card game references and call it what it is/what you want it to be, a 257 RALLY.
Then Mudrunner can change his username to MudRally2019
the Headstamps will say 257 _________ and on the other side in the same orientation it will say BLACKJACK. We have considered calling it 257 BLACKJACK though but want the mass market to realize that 257 __________ is also a reference to a new cartridge and not just the bullets.
The 257 ______ prototypes will be here in about 2 weeks!
Although this brass already has a prototype name designation, 257 Black Magic, 257 Vegas, 257 STAG, 257 JACKPOT, and others have stuck in my mind pretty well.
When we start Load Dev and publishing this stuff we will be as detailed as possible and produce a PDF for the cartridge with different powders - that is to say we will be much more exhaustive with this Load Dev and Load Data than what we publish for cartridges with sister calibers like 6/6.5 creed and x47.
The case capacity and geometry is in a sort of void between many useful SA cartridges and LA cartridges so we want to provide as much data as possible.
I attached the 257 WBY MAG case head as well - who didn't have a cartridge they wished they had growing up? Hopefully in the coming years 257 ______ will have that effect on some young and old shooters!
