Reloader or not, that short throat leaves performance on the table. Part of why hornady has done well, they haven’t unnecessarily hampered themselves with outdated COAL restrictions on the PRC line.
I have no affinity for the .277. I’m just looking for my Goldilocks western hunting cartridge and it would mimic the 6.8 W’s ballistics but in a short action 7mm. Similar to a 7 SAUM or 7-6.5 PRC but with all the rifle and ammo offerings of something more mainstream.
I did pick one. The 6.5 PRC. But ammo companies won’t stop innovating if it is lucrative and the consumers keep consuming. Hence, the point of this thread. What do you see as the next new commercially successful cartridge and what factors do you think will drive its success?There are already so many cartridges that are already the western “Goldilocks”, what possible niche are you looking to fill? 223 to 30-06 and everything in between (and a bunch north of the 06) will work. There are literally dozens of cartridges in that realm. Pick one and go kill shit.
