What other cartridges would you like to see us offer?  By offer I mean stock barrels, die sets, etc., etc.

.25-223? (Not .25-45 Sharps, but the .25-223 'cat done by a group on Arfcom that is a bit shorter than the Sharps so you can use the longer bullets)
6x45?
.375 SOCOM?
.458 SOCOM?
The TCU's?
.17-223?
.20 Practical/Tactical?

Right now I like what we have going on with the 277 Wolverine, 6mm Mongoose, 6.5 Mongrel soon, 7.62x40, etc. - all 5.56 based cats.

The 7VAR, 358 Yeti will be a wait with the whole bolt issue going on but we will stock them as well.

What's your wish list?  We will be moving up to the 6.8 case/bolt sized cats in the near future so please think about that one as well.  6mm, 6.5mm, 7mm, 7.62mm.

After we are somewhat satisfied with our 5.56 and 6.8 case variants, will will move up to the AR10 platform cartridges.

My vote would be for the 25-223 and 458 SOCOM. What I am really holding out for is the 358 Yeti.

25-223 wouldn't be a bad option to add, along with a 20 Practical. I think 6x45 would be redundant with the 6 Mongoose on the list. The main advantage if you over 6.8 variants would be your prices, most of the other companies producing them are selling their barrels at twice the price yours normally run for.

I'm liking the .375 SOCOM as a medium to large bore option for the AR-15 but what
I don't like is the cost and availability of the brass and limited bolt availability as
well...perhaps these problems can be overcome over time.

I did want to look Into a .308 Winchester based variant necked up to .375 caliber, I
do believe It has been tried at some point but I need to look Into it further. This of
course would be for the larger frame AR-10/AR-308 pattern/platform...This would
relieve most Issues with bolt strength/limitations. 

Thanks.

Biggdawg, You caught my attention with the 8MM comment. Crazysccrmd mentioned playing around with doing an 8-08 before on a thread in the Military Cartridges section. Is that what your thinking or are you looking at something else? Personally I would love to see an 8MM Kurtz chambered AR.

i have a couple designs i am working with one is on the 284 case and the other is on a larger case, just have to figure out the bolt issue first for that one.

here is an estimate for the 284 based

I'd love to see a larger bore subsonic only 223 based cat. Something like the 338 whisper 2. Or maybe 338 Spectre.

6x6.8 and 6.5x6.8 would be nice.  they seem really well suited for the 6.8 case. very good performers.

and then a 6brx would be nice.  i guess that is essentially what BIGDAWG is working on if i understand correctly. 

oh yes if i had more time and money to play with all this.

My 6mm lynx is basically a stretched 6brx it can run 105's in an ar but it was mainly done for 95 and under in the ar. i will be running some 105's in it and i will run the 105 and 107 in the savage.  Bolt issue gets figured out we will have them available in limited numbers.

6.8 case/bolt sized cats with chamber dimensions optimized for 6.8 AR mag limitations in either 6mm, 6.5mm, or 7mm. Out of these, which one would offer the following: excellent bullet for bench shooting from a an AR, excellent bullet for whitetail, hog, and predator hunting?

ARP's 5.56x42 would be an interesting one. I could be a little biased since my barrel and dies showed up yesterday though.

Since H is dropping some of his wildcats it would be nice if you stocked them. With his blessing of course. 270 ar. 6mmbrx.

I would be happy to if he was interested in doing so, but I don't think he is.

I will have the 7mm on the 6.8 case drawn up tonight. i think that would be a good one, no one has done it and it could be the baby brother to the Valkyrie.

Unfortunately for all of us, I think H is gearing up for retirement.

A 7mm version would definitely be Interesting IMHO, It would likely
do well in the SPC parent case with light and medium weight pills...

So maybe something like a 7x41mm round in a AR sounds pretty good.

I have always believed the best calibers in a AR platform start from 6mm
and end at 7mm for best overall performance and accuracy w/o having to
deal with a lot of felt recoil and blast, etc. 

Thanks.

The downside to necking up the 6.8 is not being able to just use off the shelf 6.8 bushing dies.

I would like to see you add the 20 Practical. It, like the others, is based off the .223/5.56 case and would not blur any lines to the 277WLV like some of the other options may. That and the ability to load/shoot a round going over 4000fps is kinda cool.

We plan on this one for sure.

357 super max magnum. It took a few experiments but I managed to mangle one piece into existence.
