Is anyone here shooting .277 Wolverine? I'm having a barrel made for it, but I don't think I'll have hands on for at least few months, it will take that long just for me to import the dies on order.
This will be my first wildcat, and I figured it's close to 6.8 SPC, (less cost in loading) and will be something different. Seem like a real versatile cartridge within it's niche, as MDWS puts it;Being in Canada I can't make use of suppressors or barrel lengths less than 18.5, but I think this will make a great round for target, varmint and thin skinned game within the hunting ranges I usually have.The .277 Wolverine could be considered a hybrid of the 6.8SPC, the 300 Blackout, the 7.62x39 and the .223/5.56 NATO, making it THE MOST versatile cartridge for the standard AR15 platform.
What do you guys think, is this new chambering a good idea or waste of time? I guess I'll find out soon enough myself, I haven't seen or heard reports of .277 WLV in Canada or on an XCR-L for that matter.

Waste of time if you don't reload. If you do...it's a different ball game.

I have quite a bit of experience with it.....most of it bad. There are quite a few inherent problems.
