    .404 Jeffery as the parent case, so, basically, a .270 RUM??

    As always, gotta ask, why not 7mm where the long range bullets already ARE?

    What IS this fascination with .277?

    Why do my responses to a new .277 cartridge only end in question marks?
    WWJMBD?

    Why ask why?

    Because is as good an answer as any.

    And we have a winner!!!  They look at the lineup and basically fill a hole, whether real or invented, mostly invented.  Someone will buy it!

    In all seriousness, the numbers on it look good when viewed in a vacuum.  It has a pretty significant velocity bump over a standard .270 Win (not so much over the mags).  The reality, of course, is that the cost of ammo and all but assuredly short barrel life would relegate the round to a very low shot volume rifle for a fringe niche of long range shooters/hunters.

    Um, you mean the 28 Nosler? Which has been out for several years already?

    I see they're not bragging about the reduced recoil on their 6 lb. Mt model.

    I'm guessing they believe there will be more bullet options now that Sig announced they are "all in" with the Sig Fury. Remember this one.

    Time will tell.

    If you want to shoot a .270, just suck up your pride and shoot a .270 Win and be done with it.

    I do.

    Wow! I completely missed the .404 Jeffery case base.
    WTH? I bet they'll sell a whopping 300 of these.

    Nope, its a whole brand spanking ' new out of the box' revolutionary concept that will completely fulfill the potential of the 277 cal that everyone has dreamed of.................well, snake at least...... ;)

    You implying that scorching the bore with a Coke can full of powder from a $2 brass case isn’t appealing to the average shooter?

    Well, yeah, so they're already doing it in 7mm so why duplicate it with this thing for the sake of a bore diameter number with attachments to Winchester drinking their bong water a hundred years ago?

    Ima go cast some bullets for a .303 Brit now. . .

    Should make a good collectors piece if no one buys them.

    So, loaded really HOT, this round should be good for those super large rabbits they have in Germany?

    As long as the guide backs him up with the .22wmr.  Wouldn’t want a wounded rabbit charging.

    They (Nosler) put a supercharger on a Yugo. How quaint................... :D: D :D:D

    For someone who hunts the throat life, would be a lot of hunting seasons.

    Since the 27 Nosler is coming any thoughts on a 35 Nosler? That will peak my interest.

    Yep.  If you stick to relatively quick seasonal sight-in and make field shots count (and don't care about the component/ ammo cost), throat longevity won't be a concern.  The significant velocity push may be worthwhile if the itch for a new hunting gun is there.

     The gun. 
    The brass. 
    The caliber. 
    The cartridge. 

    Peak no interest in me. 

    Somewhere, a kitten gives its life for every .277 cartridge made. 

    Guess that’s not such a bad thing. In the end.

    When it comes down to preference of long range hunting, I would prefer a 7mm or 30 cal myself over a 27, but if it makes folks happy, let them hunt with what they want.

    Gun companies come out with new stuff,  people complain. 

    Gun companies don't come out with new stuff,  people complain. 

    New stuff drives sales,  they're in the business of making money.  I for the life of me cannot figure out why so many gun nuts complain about something they won't buy anyways.  It doesn't effect you if you've got no interest,  so why even discuss the coulda woulda shoulda. Someone will buy it, Nosler makes money.  Nosler makes money,  they keep the doors open.  Keep the doors open,  they'll also make stuff you may want.  Simple stuff.

    I don’t care if they make it or not. Don’t care if people buy it and enjoy. 
    Simply saying it doesn’t interest me. 

    And that kittens die. 😁

    None of which is a complaint.

    Let’s face it, most of what we choose to spend our hard earned money on is about personal preference. 
    It’s the industries job to provide the options to the consumer. Some succeed and some fail. Cost of doing business. 
    I, as a consumer, am entitled to have an opinion on what I purchase. Which means, I can like and dislike at will.  Which means........I can talk good and bad about the options afforded me. So, get over it if I don’t like your product.  Offer something I will like if you want to sell to me. If you DON’T want to sell to me.........you don’t have to. 
    Free market. A wonderful thing.  That’s how it works, Milehighshooter. 

    Some folks are traditionally motivated. Some folks are ballistically motivated. Some folks are newistically motivated. 

    We have choices. I can hate an XD Springfield all I want. It’s my option. Doesn’t make the fact someone else wants to buy it a bad choice. Just means........I ain’t gonna be one of those folks.

    To me........and I ain’t buying a single Nosler cartridge.......the .28 Nosler beats the .27 Nosler ballistics and is therefore the most logical choice. My choice. 

    May not be someone else’s choice. But, I reserve the right to actually HAVE a choice. So, when you, Milehighshooter, come along and badger me about not liking a choice.......I say.......piss off. I have a choice and will exercise it. 

    Besides, I don’t mind kittens dying. So please, by all means.......exercise YOUR choice and purchase a .27 Nosler.
