Introducing the new Sherman Max case:
With the trend to building short action rounds on long actions, and given availability of some new medium length custom actions, plus Tikkas and the like, we decided to introduce the new Sherman Max case for increased performance over the amazing SS case when a longer coal is warranted.
With that said, the new case is basically an SS on steroids, or a "Shermanized SAUM" if you will. This package, with more capacity and plenty of free bore, should push the 195 Berger to near 3000 fps. This is a lot of performance out of a SAUM length case! Compare this to the barrel burning magnums with 20+ grains more capacity, and see what we mean. The cartridge will allow seating the bullet to the lands at 3.090" and is ideally suited for medium length actions. Tikka T3 actions are very popular platforms for a Sherman Max build.
Besides MAX performance, head stamped brass comes with a SAUM profile with a Sherman Max head stamp that will head space in your chamber. Reamers, go-gauges and die set are now available.
This cartridge will no doubt keep with, or surpass the WSM with much better brass and superior design. The combination will be difficult to be beat for ELR matches or a very potent hunting round in a compact package!
The Sherman Max family of cartridges includes the 6.5 Max, 7 Max, 300 Max and 338 Max.
