224 cal in a shortened RPM case with just a little more powder capacity than the 220 Swift like the 220 Weatherby Rocket capacity,but with 1 in 8 twist for 80gr pills.

that would be cool  8)

Where a bolt action 224 might be great in Canada, competing with 223/5.56 AR's is a lost cause in the U.S., IMO.   :)

The 22CM craze is in full bloom around here.
Remember 10534

Sorry... Yesterday was the last and final day for any and all complaints whatsoever.

I try to avoid temptation unless I can't resist it.

Everyone has a photographic memory.Some just don't have film.

Everything CM is in full craze around here! Great little rounds can't knock them - smaller and short action seems to be a thing these days like PRC, people buying vangaurds in prc and would by them in a mark v over the rpm?

Want an rpm but i'm waiting on wby to move to LH line and i will punch that ticket!

Yes you were and I thought it might be a 7mm, I bet that happens at some point.
Actually, the 338 will be pretty neat although I believe in that bore I would want more powder like the 340Wea or RUM or Nosler. But, it will have power very close to a 338 WM, not bad.

Would still like to see a 7mm-300wby  and a 25rpm. I'm a fan of 25cals

Yea, my Number 1 .257 Wea. with the 28" barrel is a screamer

Yeah, Weatherby really needs an ultra fast 7mm in the lineup.
