Re: A Brand New Winchester Calibre At Shot Show

Looking at the Winchester site I did not see it listed for any of the guns.
It has to be case mouth headspace- watch that COAL !
Rimmed case would have been a better idea BUT they designed it to work on the AR so that guys can hunt with their ARs.

Interesting, I do like to see new cartridges. I wonder why they show the penetration at 200 against a 243 & 223 as opposed to 30-30 & 32 or 35 at 100? Of course it's going to penetrate better with more bullet weight. I'd rather see data for big game class of rounds( nothing wrong with 243) as well a...
