    Default I am a fan of .25-06 and...

    .270. So my .25-06 Sendero, .270 Rem bolt guns have that covered. Both AR's are 6.8 so got the .277 spectrum covered. I would love to see more .257 caliber offerings in an AR15 other than the .25-45 Sharps. So I was wondering if H or anyone else has given thought to a 6.8 based quarter bore AR15? 6.5 Grendel? But with .223, 6mm, .22 Nosler, .277 etc... so close to .257 would it be worthwhile? The .25-45 Sharps seems to have a good following now.

Naturally, it may be used by evil men for evil purposes, but there are more good men than evil, and while the latter cannot be persuaded to the path of righteousness by propaganda, they can certainly be corrected by good men with rifles."

    I wish it were more popular. Some shops that chamber barrels in smaller quantities could do it but my guys wont touch a 25cal drill. It took me 7 years to talk him into doing a 6mm.
    AR Performance 6.8 SPC, 5.56 & Grendel barrels.

    BHW makes a 25x6.8 as a straight neck down. DTI makes a 25 DTI with the shoulder blown out a little bit. Might be a few others out there.

    I've got a feeling that the new .22 Nosler case will get the full spectrum of wildcatting - including a .257 cal. Perhaps Nosler is testing the new .224 cartridge for popularity now & is planning future factory offerings based on the same AR friendly parent case.
