Great cartridge.


It's Un-Australian if they bloody don't mate. I know there is a petition to try and convince them.


I recently sent them an inquiry asking about a .303, and the reply I got was that they don’t think it will be viable.
I guess we won’t be seeing one anytime soon then.
Shoot straight you bastards, don’t make a mess of it!!

Surely they could do a limited run like Ruger does with it's No1's. It's bloody 2018, and they can't be innovative?

Probably the cost of R&D amortized to the limited australian market might not be worth it. Read somewhere they make 80 rifles per day, but the tooling cost for a limited run.

Ruger no1 run likely means a few hundred rifles (say eg 500) a time, for America that would be limited but for Australia it's likely about what they sell in a year.

Yes, I have to agree with you there Ziad. But it would be cool if they just made it happen.

Thre is always hope mate.

I look at ruger, the 243win is the most unloved caliber in the range, same with the 223. They rolled with 6 creedmore. Apart from marketing I can't see reason why.....esp considering 6creed has ideal barrel life of around 1k while 243 would be double.

Popular money in the bank mate. I am reading this.


The old rounds are still relevant. They are just unknown to the younger shooters.
