    8.6 Creedmoor

    Q is calling it the “300blk’s big brother” and “300blk for men.”

    As is typical of Q marketing, they will gain hype for the caliber, make a short bolt gun for it (SBR and pistol versions) which will release 6 months from now as they trickle in a large frame honey badger and matching can.

    If it catches on, I’ll be tempted. I have an Form 1 Mega Maten lower that has no practical use.... yet.

    Lol Q’s marketing....Trust me it will be sweeeeet.

    That pretty much sums up every interview and press release I’ve seen. Lots of unsubstantiated claims.

    I hate to sound like a fan boy but every Q product that has come through the shop that I have gotten to use has been outstanding & extremely well thought out .
    And as far as their cans they have been some of the quietest & most pleasant toned ones I've ever shot . And I'm not saying this just to try to get a free 8.6 Fix .........Kevin , Kevin you there ?

    Because he’s advertising it in a Bolt Gun? All I’ve seen is Bolt Gun related hosts. The one article at TFB mentioned nothing about a gas gun. I didn’t have time to read the second doubly long article

    That’s why I said “I may be wrong here...”

    And how am I supposed to know, without question, that it’ll function a gasser by looking at a bolt gun photo and a bullet schematic?

    You could simply say “No, there’s definitely gas gun potential here”. And I would’ve said “okay thanks”.

    Since bolt guns don't cycle the way the article implies, there you go.
    There's no "Team" in F**K YOU!

    Found some pics of pretty much the same thing they are claiming as groundbreaking. Lol After seeing those case dimensions I’m even less impressed. Nothing but a Ackley Improved .338 Federal.
