    No one?

    Performance[edit]

    Nosler took the 6.5mm cartridge and necked it up to 7mm. The 28 Nosler is loaded in a variety of weights.[4] According to data listed for Nosler ammunition, the 28 Nosler is capable of firing a 160 gr. AccuBondŽ bullet at 3300 fps muzzle velocity or a 175gr AccuBondŽ Long Range bullet at 3125 fps muzzle velocity when fired from a rifle with a 26” barrel.[5]

    To give some context, at 160 grains the 28 Nosler is around 300 fps faster at the muzzle than the 7mm Remington Magnum. [3]

    Will make a great long range cal for anyone who doesn't want to reload with the factory ammo that's available.

    Before anyone conciders this, better check ammo and brass price, ouch. it is $6.00 plus a round up here (Canada), brass is very expensive, if you can find it.
    Know of a few .26 Nosler's that are now for sale, for this reason,
    The .28 Nosler isn't doing anything, that the Weatherby, STW or 7mm RUM arn't already capable off.
    Not sure there is room for another big 7mm, at least the 26 Nosler brings more to the table, that its closest rival, the .264 win,
