Not being a reloader, long range shooter or straight up ammo/ballistics nerd, I may be missing the full significance of this round. In development my Kiote Rifles (Ki’ote), the details are being held close to the chest. However with a bullet length equal the cartridge length, I was intrigued even as a “factory-box” bullet buyer.
Using up to a 140gr projectile, the makers of the prototype Kiote round say that the case has a greater capacity than the .260 Creedmoor and others while pushing 2800 feet per second. Although, as I am reminded by Nathaniel F., feeding the steep-walled cartridge into a chamber could be challenging.
