Shot Show is just a few weeks away, Fred Zeglin of 4D Reamer Rentals LTD heads to Shot each year to make sure he has all the new caliber offerings for his clients. Last year is was the 26 Nosler and the 25-45 Sharps (SRC).
So far the information leaks about new cartridges for 2015 have been controlled, no sneak peaks at what is coming from the factories. However, Fred says there are new wildcats getting some attention.
6mm Creedmoor has already been added to 4D’s list of reamers you can rent. It looks like wildcats on the 26 Nosler case are what will be hot in 2015. Those calibers will include:
- 25 Nosler
- 27 Nosler
- 28 Nosler
- 30 Nosler
- 33 Nosler
- 35 Nosler
- 375 Nosler
- 416 Nosler
All of these wildcats based on the 26 Nosler case will use the same headspace gauges, they are simply necked up, or in the case of the 25 necked down versions of the parent case.
6mm Grendel and 6.8mm Grendel are making waves too. Both of these are based on the popular 6.5 Grendel. If you’re a bolt action fan these cartridge are available in a configuration better suited to a bolt gun as the BPC (Borden Palmisano Cartridge) series, all using the same gauges.
Look for 4D Reamer Rentals to add all these reamers and more in 2015.
