Just finished reading about the new Short magnum from big green. It looks like they expect to get the same velocity from their 30 cal version with a 22" tube, that Winchester gets from a 24 inch tube with the Win mag and a 180 grain partition. Now all things being equal, that means that you should be able to get 300 Weatherby velocities from a short action magnum with a 26 inch tube. This is going to be an interesting winter if this thing gets to the public. :cool:
