    Latest Nosler Offering : The 26 Nosler

    Actually looks alright......


    "Nosler announced a new rifle cartridge that will formally launch at the 2014 SHOT Show. The 26 Nosler is being billed as the “World’s Most Powerful 6.5mm Commercial Cartridge.” The new cartridge will push a 129 grain AccuBond Long Range bullet at 3400 fps. With the same bullet, the 26 Nosler will have the same velocity at 400 yards as the 260 Remington would at the muzzle.

    Read the original article here: New Cartridge: the 26 Nosler . Make sure you visit GunsHolstersAndGear.com for all of the latest gun news, reviews and SHOT Show coverage."


    Its looking like it wont need a muzzle brake !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The reamer prints I have show it to be bigger than the Blaser, the same size as the WSM/Rum in the arse end.

    So basically a long WSM or short Rum

    I wonder what rifles it will be chambered in and if those chambers will have a really long throat aka the weatherbys.

    Also remember reading a review of a Nosler custom rifle with nosler custom ammo that was way way slow of advertised velocity's.

    Still neat to have another factory cal and one that hand loading would possibly bring out the best in.
    "Hunting and fishing" fucking over licenced firearms owners since ages ago.

    I don't think I'll trade the .264 magnum anytime soon. 61 grains of N560, 3100 fps with the 140 amax with a 23 " barrel.
