It's about time someone threw us a bone.

This could very well be the beginning of the Golden Age of the .277 caliber. We got two new .277 cartridges in one year. I bet the release of the 27 Nosler and the .277 Sig Fury, will shake some new .277 bullets loose from the manufacturers.

I'd like to see a few 8-8.5 twist barrels in 277 at bugholes or Brunos etc. The 165 RDF or custom competition could get sierra to make some 160-175 smk's with the 27 caliber ogive. Or even a tipped match or game king!!

This, actually has me looking to buy a new rifle again... (Like I needed an excuse). Wayyyyyy back in the day I was drooling over the 270 Arnold Magnum but never could scrape the money together as a young sailor for a custom rifle build, and then they went under.

This could very well be my do-all rifle. Since I will never go to Africa or hunt brown bears, it fits my bill perfectly!

Now, if I can get an answer from Browning whether they will include 27 Nosler as an offering for their X-Bolt Hell's Canyon Long Range...

I was surprised the 30 didn’t become more popular. I like it much more than the prc, but it’s just me. 30-28nosler sure is popular
Can you tell me why you like the 30 Nosler more then a 300 PRC as i am just going to have a 300 PRC built - Thks WP

Jeff Broz just killed a 30 Nosler barrel in under 900 shots. I’d go with the PRC
Run max vo with N570 and that'll happen. That still sounds fast to kill that in low round count. It may have been run. The case capacity between the two is like 5 grains, neck length the same, and the nosler has 5° sharper shoulder. So I think the prc/nosler will have similar barrel life, just depending on how you load and how hot you get ur barrel.

Heard Kooky Bernie is handin' 'em out right and left. I wonder where he gets the money...
That phucktard ain't never had a job where he worked for his money, he don't get the concept of earning your keep, paying your own way. Pretty sure he'd fail a psych eval on many levels.

We gotta be cool. I've already gotten private note from Len about a political post from a week or so ago...

N570, N565 RL26 all run hot, but performance is higher than comparable powders in same burn rate. No free lunches here unfortunately!
I know that RL26 is pretty vicious and I/ve heard the same with 570 but the speed very tight sd and accuracy at least for RL26 is unmatched. I could match 2 but not all 3 things with other powders in the cartridges I am/have run it in.

Anyone else feel like the a 270PRC the 300PRC parent case would be a win?
Why? The 27 nosler has a shorter shoulder than the 30N so it's capacity is prob 97-98gr, the prc is 96gr. The length is the same, the 27N has a neck thats 0.328" long, that's why longer than a necked down prc would be. I like 35° over the prc 30°. I don't get everyone's boner for the 300prc. There's nothing special about it the case, the chamber however is geared towards long heavy bullets in fast twist barrels, they did that part right.
