We just started 4 rifle builds in 26 Nosler. I was curious if there are anyone else shooting this yet. We will be building them on a Tikka T3 with a custom Bartlein barrel. Plan to run the 130 and 140 AB, and 130 Scirocco.

The brass is outrageous! $70 for 25 pieces...and isn't Nosler the only one producing the brass? It sound like an awesome cartridge but expensive.

It's an awesome cartridge on paper, and I'm pretty sure it won't disappoint. It looks like a pretty good enticement to get into the 6.5s for anyone who hasn't done so.

I have a left handed Ruger in a 375 ruger, and a 26 inch proof research barrel that need to be mated. Or maybe not...I already have a 6.5x284, 6.5x55---depends on how long the winter gets.

My 7 mm Rem Mag is thinking about a sex change to 26 Nosler. I've already got the scope, talley rings a McMillan stock so I'm just a bartlein barrel away.

LOL, sex change, huh! I am buying the 26 Nosler reamer, so we can build more rifles in this caliber.
