    I'm not going to be proprietary about the 26 Nosler wildcats. In fact I welcome contribution.

    How shall we refer to the caliber/chambering?

    2 digits followed by "Nosler" like the original?
    27 Nosler
    28 Nosler
    30 Nosler
    32 Nosler
    33 Nosler
    35 Nosler
    37 Nosler

    3 digits a "/" followed by "26 Nosler"
    277/26 Nosler
    284/26 Nosler​
    Or something different?

    284 Nosler
    308 Nosler
    338 Nosler
    375 Nosler
    416 Nosler
    458 Nosler

    And whatever else you want. That would distinghish them from the original and is more specific. Don't like 26 Nosler and why copy them. They might come out with the 30 Nosler, etc

    Berger says that's high on their priority list for their bullet designers and testers, once they get caught up on production and orders.

    There will be an 8mm/323. What does the "S" on the end mean?
    but
    This thread is all about naming the chambering. The other thread is about doing it.

    The S in European terms makes it clear that it is 323' and not 318'!! Very important though!
