It's ballistically a 9.3mmx62mm or a 9.3mmx74mm and offers NOTHING they don't. If you want to compare to american rounds,if an animal is too big(???) for the 35 whelen,step up to the .375 ruger.

IMHO This round will flop.
I am suprised that the 338-06 never caught on. Weatherby at one time chambered a 338-06 in there ultra-lite rifle. I am kicking myself for not buying one.[:@]

Marketing??? They are going to have to do a heck of a lot of it to get this one to sell.

Profit?? I think they are going to loose their butt.
I am not sure if you realize how many hundreds of thousands(if not more) of collector's there are out there. Especially collector's of brand specific firearms. They will sell tons of these rifles to collector's alone. These collector's will not even shoot these rifles. I personally know a half dozen Sako collector's, and every one I know will buy this rifle to "complete their colection". I am not defending this action, I am only pointing out that it will happen.

If you do not believe me then just look at what happened to the price of an inexpensive Winchester 94 when they quit making them. Or just look at the prices of the 1886 & 1885???

I agree with you, as I stated I do not believe the cartridge will be long term successful. But the hype can work. Just look what they did to shooters and hunters with the 17HMR. They got us to buy all the rifles in the 17 HMR cartridge and sold all that ammo to hunters who already had a 22 magnum!!! Now ain't that a hoot!!! Tom.

I have a 338-06 that I had builtabout 15 years agoand agree it's a fine round but in today's world selling anything over 30 cal that doesn't have magnum in it's name is difficult.

"....also very little competition in the .416 caliber IMO...."
Very few buyers at the 416level and with the 416 Taylor and 416RemMag anchoring the lower end and the 416 Rigby taking care of the middle and upper endand finally the 416 Weatherby Magcovering the top end, there is very little economic room in the 416 niche, IMHO. Ruger has already cast their ballot with the 416 Rigby as has CZ. Ruger could break from the pack, but I wouldn't bet on it.... lots of talk over at AR about it.... no doubt Ruger has made a test rifle.

How about the AR line of cartridges based on the shortened ultra mag case? Talk about a heck of a family of cartridges.
