So the 308 Win seems approved by AH, what about the rifle?

the 6mm springfield would shoot flat.
but the 6.5 springfield would be the current darling of the hipster set.

well now the springfield case is obsolete.
the new 277 sig cartridge with a steel case head is loaded to 80,000 psi, and gives sprinfield case capacity ballistics with a much shorter case.
so the obvious question here is where does this new technology leave bob.
he can now use this case necked down to 25, and up to 35, to get the same ballistics as his 25 wildcat and the 35 springfield in a short action.
perhaps in one of the new savage straight pulls.
only 1 gun required and 2 barrels.
manbuns out and shaven tattooed heads in.
latte out and earl grey tea in.

You know I don't like technology and I'm happy with the old that I have. If'n I got that new 35 you wumped up I wouldn't be able to get bullets to suit it so what would be the use.
OLD STILL WORKS FINE FOR ME

bob,
no the cases need to have steel heads to take the pressure.
at 80,000 psi, i wonder how long machine gun barrels will last in that calibre.
when the us military fully adopts the cartridge, i would like shares in some barrel making facilities.

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian

Did you purchase your hunt at a US SCI fundraiser?

Heard you may have load data for the 500 Jeffery,.....any info would be appreciated. Was thinking 535gr, but already had a response that the 570gr would be a better way to go, not sure why.
