    Would like to find out which companies are making rifles for this round. Thanks. 44

    First off, check the various companies' websites.

    I know Browning is making their A-Bolt in the .243 WSSM, per a G&A article in the June issue. Since it's "WSSM", I'd imagine Winchester is, too. :)

    Shouldn't be too long before they all will be chambering stuff for these cartridges, although I have no idea about the various specific models.

    I think right now, just Winchester and Browning. Fair chance that Savage will add them to their lineup in due time.

    Keep in mind, these are brand, brand new cartridges. My dealer hasn't received a single 243 WSSM last I spoke with him.

    Thanks. I appreciate the information. A bit in the NRA Freedom magazine says .223 and .243 WSSM actions will be 1/2" shorter than other WSM actions. They show the .223 and .243 WSSM Winchester ammo in Ballistic Silvertip and Power Point. I'm just waking up on this new cartridge. 44
