Seems most manufacturers are pumping out rifles in this caliber these days.
Similar to the Rem .260.
But with a different case shoulder angle compared to other .308 cases.
BC looks great.
Should be plenty enough knock down energy out to 600m for most NZ game.
With low recoil.
My online research indicates that this round started out it`s life as a bench rest/match case then hunting projectiles came later.
Hence the great ballistic figures,wind drift,drop etc.
Looking at a new centerfire in the near future,so any feedback would be appreciated.
Cheerz.

Peace.Via superior firepower..

Ive used 120 gr a-max round, accurate round as its designed for target shooting but works really well for medium sized game under 800 meters. 
Cheers
