No problem i think it is a very interesting cartridge, I have sent an email to Sherman website and we can try to work out whats needed to get this stuff imported. I have been thinking about building a custom 6mm dog gun for some time now. My wife even likes the idea which is unusual cause I have already bought one rifle this year and its only June hehehe

cheers

Rich,
I'm pretty sure there is a typo in the load data for the 200 gr bullet in the 338 Sherman. It shows N560 getting 3100 fps. Highest I got was barely 2700 with N560. I'm pretty sure it should be N550.

It is N550. I asked Ryan to correct it.
Thx

Sorry guys! Been a crazy start to the summer for me. I should get a few minutes to myself this weekend and will get updates on loads and the correction. I havent forgot about the PM's I've received either.
Thanks

Just got a call from StraightJacket Armory and they finally got my Carbon Six 7mm barrel blank for my AI AXMC. I have 200 28 SM brass, new Hornady dies, .312” bushing, N570 powder, Fed 215Ms, and 500 195 EOLs. Who’s loading the new 28 Sherman Magnum?

No one has sent me data yet. I would use Nosler starting data and work up until you're happy🙂
