    Can you guess which one it is...

    I'm not getting anything gun related for the holidays but my main gift that I got Friday I've been playing with.

    There's a .223 and a .300 Blackout on either side. I used the .223 as a reference but this was not meant to be to any scale.

    So what actual round do you think it's closest to?


    And Merry Christmas!

    Been a while since I actually looked at one but it almost looks like a 22-250 but with a larger bullet.

    Looks similar to 7.62x39 but the taper is off.
    Is it 6.8spc?

    Is it a Grizzly? I have a few hours on a lathe in the woodshop. I wish it were a metal lathe...

    I will wager Two Seventy Seven Sycamore, which is a blown out Six Eight.:)
    The two seventy caliber has become quite Poplar lately.:D
    Wait... @Bfh_auto is on to something.
    Is it a Six mm Russian Olive?:rofl:

    One cannot, of course, "develop" a new caliber. Caliber is a unit of measure expressed in Metric or Imperial measure of a firearm's bore or groove diameter.

    Your new cartridge is pretty cool looking. I don't have enough expertise to venture a an educated guess on it but it looks like a very handy intermediate cartridge.

    Looks to me to be a .277 Wolverine. Great little cartridge.

    It had better be a white oak precision upper if it’s an AR.

    Thats a cool picture.

    But, good luck with trying to develop something new. My oldest Son wanted very much to develop a new wildcat cartridge. I suggested that He Google Huntington Die Specialities and look at their list of dies. He quickly gave up on the idea of something new.
