What case is it based on and who will chamber it? Looks interesting.

Clearly, Nosler is chambering the cartridge. Haven't heard any scuttlebutt yet about others chambering the load.

...you might try googling Nosler/ Shot Show/ 26 Nosler, so far I'll I've seen is pics, & not very good ones, but since Nosler is introing it today, I would guess there should be some "buzz" from people @ Shot Show...

It is based off the 404 Jeffery case and will fit a standard action length so the case length will be around 2.5".
Not sure of the shoulder angle.

They had a Nemo Omen chambered in 26 Nosler at the booth today. What a rifle! I believe it will also be chambered in their own rifles (Obviously) but I don't know if Remington or Winchester will be chambering rifles. I can stop by tomorrow and ask if you'd like.

As long as Winchester has their own .264 I doubt if you will see it chambered in a M70. Maybe a Browning or FN. I see where FN is coming out with a push feed rifle this year also.

The 26 Nosler looks pretty interesting. Not sure I am running to get one, but if I were in the market for another screamer, I would look pretty close. Sounds like a great case. Should be the open country hunters dream..

The dimensions they gave are the 375 Ruger case. I picked Howa to chamber it off the 26nosler.com site. I think I was the only one to pick Howa LOL.

Rick,

Can you share the case dimensions.

Nosler's ad says it is based on a modified .404 Jeffrey case.

Pretty neat they give you a chance to vote on which manufacturer you would like to see chamber it as well, I voted for Savage since they might offer a lefty version and will offer good inexpensive rifles. Interesting to see Savage and Remington are the most popular choices so far.

If it wasn't for the fact I knew it was a 26 Nosler(.264cal), I would have said these dimensions are a Vom Hofe 7x66. Never the 26 Nosler is an impressive looking cartridge.

Interesting data comparison.

Interesting is to say the least. It looks like Nosler got it right. On paper nothing compares to it.

If it does not have a rebated rim it would more closely resemble a 375Ruger case. The 375 Ruger has a case capacity of 96 grains and a 30-375 Ruger has a capacity of 93.6 its seems the 26 Nosler capacity of 93 would match that pattern.

It is definitely built off the 404 Jeffrey case so would be similar to the RUM, SAUM, WSM cases.

It would have too if it has a .532 rim size. The guy who helps run my favorite gun shop has a guy checking things out at the SHOT show and has posted these pics, not the greatest but it gives us something to look at. Shown beside the 264 WM and the 7mm RUM

He also reported it will have a 26" tube and have the proper 1 in 8 twist 8) the Patriot is apparently pretty light too.

I notice that they use the ABLR for the 26 Nosler data while most other cartridges are the regular AB. That boosts BC from .509 to .561, which doesn't hurt their longer range numbers at all.
So, there is a bit of "apples to oranges" comparison there.

It's still impressive. I'd like to see how my hunting partner's new 6.5 Weatherby compares.
