Did any one here that Ruger and Hornady are making new Short

Did any one here that Ruger and Hornady are making a 300 and a 338 Ruger Short Magnums? Does any here the ballistics or any thing on this?

Thank you from Great American Hunting Store

January 2008 Petersen's Hunting has an article but it's not too in depth.

What I'm gathering about the new cartridges is that they're basically designed to take advantage of the powders Hornady uses for their Light Magnum loads. You have to use factory ammo to get the advertised performance. Same idea as .338 Federal.

Handloading seems to be the fly in the ointment of improving on the WSMs.

Just what's needed, another 300 Magnum. I wounder how many different ways they'll be able to come up with to launch a 30 cal bullet successfully?

It is certainly strange to see another one, especially since the Remington SAUM seems to have fallen off already - I don't quite get it. I'm with you Don, stop the madness.

There supposed to have the same ballistics as the 300 WSM and 325 WSM but from a 20" barrel.
