Interesting.
What is its primary use, how much does it weigh, and what are your plans for sighting, etc.
I like the grain on that stock!

Express sights are being installed this week. Weight is about 12 lbs. Primary use is any game in the world, basically. We are considering necking down the cartridge for very long distances...

Is this another answer for a question never asked?

All questions should be asked. Otherwise there would be no inventions.

After a little web surfing, I see.
A proprietary cartridge that is extremely expensive is going to be a huge hurdle. Unless a major ammunition manufacturer steps up to offer components or complete cartridges, I see it becoming a footnote of obscurity. While the ballistics look very promising, its needs major backing. I applaud the intent, and hope they thrive, but I also am reminded of the last "Short Magnum" craze that fizzled.
