No announcement yet.

Will any short fat magnum cartridge/rifle survive for the next generation to hunt with? If so I'm predicting maybe the .270 WSM

    Just kidding you ! Lol but it’s sounds to me like a classic rationalization !

      pmacc60, I still want a Ruger No.1 (.308 Win) rechambered to .300 H&H and I want the barrel restamped, "Holland's Super .30".
      That's the original cartridge designation.
      I'll never do it, but I still want it! LOL!

          I want a ruger number one so bad and I don’t know why. I’d never use it but for some reason it calls to me. Kind of like you gotta have a 30-30 in the safe.

            'dawg, I've been shooting a Ruger No.1 for 40 years now.
            I'm not sure just exactly WHAT there is about a No.1.
            Falling block?
            Single shot?
            Classic lines?
            Note that as many Ruger No.1's there are in the world, you seldom, if ever, see a hunter with one in the field?
            You very seldom see a No.1 on the used gun rack?
            You seldom see a No.1 on a table at a gun show?
            If I had the money, I'd probably have a No.1 in EVERY caliber! LOL!

              Old thread revived.
              I don't know anyone in the original thread...Maybe one or two, I kind of blew through it quickly.
              I imagine the PRC is here to stay as is the 300 WSM. In the bench/F-Class Open world the 300 WSM and 7mm SAUM (F-Class only) still have a good following

                I remember some of those members. I joined the site later that year. Blackdawgz was a character.

                  There were a lot of "characters." Remember the "har har har" guy? The brothers that supposedly would log in under another's name an post? I think it would be interesting to see all the duplicate and alter-ego accounts back then.

                    Good to see some of these old names again. Looking forward over the next 50 years, I suspect that the growing interest in longer range precision will establish quite a few "long/fats" to make it. Most of the WSMs have a chance and the new 6.5 PRC (a necked down 300 Ruger Compact Magnum) will likely make it too. The Creedmoors are all short/fats and will probably make it for the long haul as well. The are outstanding hunting cartridges and all of them shoot lights out beyond 1000 yards.

                    They are so low in recoil and yet so effective, they just might start a trend away from "magnum" cartridges. Don't throw your short/fats away, even if they don't make it. You can reload them and enjoy them for the rest of your life. I chose my 300 Dakota because of its performance and will likely not see a cartridge to beat it for long range precision and knockdown power. I'll be happy with it for the rest of my life. Even when I travel, I have never found the need to buy factory ammo for any of my rifles.

                      I will be keeping both my 325wsm rifles. They are off the beaten path but very interesting and effective. Got enough brass for two or even three lifetimes-lol. Some claim it’s hard to find brass but I’ve never found that to be so. Otherwise, there is much good to be said in staying with time tested cartridges . Realistically, it’s been proven over 100 years ago that magnums aren’t even necessary. By the looks of it though, I’m sure more new cartridges will come to market.
                      It’s the American way.
