Awhile back Nosler introduced some new cartridges. One of them was the 26 Nosler. I read a lot about the 6.5 Creedmore and some about the 6.5 Grendel. Anyone shooting the Nosler version? IIRC it was a rebated rim design.

Quote by Chuck Hawks;

I am skeptical about a 6.5mm cartridge based on a modified elephant cartridge case (the .404 Jeffery). Just how much powder makes sense behind a lightweight bullet (129-140 grains)? I mean, the .26 Nosler takes the definition of "over-bore" to new heights. The .264 Win. Mag. got a reputation as a barrel burner at about 200 fps lower velocity and while burning less powder.The .264 is also known for its sharp muzzle blast and recoil. This does not bode well for the even more extreme .26 Nosler's barrel life, muzzle blast and recoil.
End quote.

I am thinking of getting the new 6.5 weatherby magnum barrel burner.
