I've hearing it's a steel base and PLASTIC case...not brass.

Time will tell how this one turns out, if it even makes it off the ground.

It's not plastic, it's brass, with steel head.

This is the all brass version of the 277 Fury.
277 on left, 6.5 Creed on right.
Over 3k out of a 16 inch barrel with the 3 piece ammo is easily attainable.

Do you know if the steel head version has a plastic case?
Is it possible to reload the case that has a steel head?

I agree on the hot flash throat burning thing,,, I could run my 6.5 A-square hotter then I am,,, but I backed it down by 1 1/2 to 2 grains less than max that slows flash burn down,,, prolong brass life,,, and it still has enough bling to harvest critters and hit iron gongs beyond the 1000 meter mark...

I'm definitely running in the low CUP of pressure with the 140gr bullets @ 2880 ft-per seconds using H1000 or SSC Hodgdon 4831...

Yes,,, Over loading hot flash """could""" put a end to barrel life fast...

My winter and off season loads are much tammer,,, I use 3 of the tightest nodes below max for the good stuff,,, the lowest charge is very close to my 308 Winchester 178gr flight path,,, Ha.

Good practic at hitting targets on the Windy days...

Thanks for the up date on the new cartridge,,, hopefully it has the same bolt face of the 308/ 30/06... I'd give something like a try if it is...

Cheers from the North
