    .277 SIG Fury anyone?

    My first thought was, “Just what I need, another rifle caliber”. Here is a link, what are your thoughts?

    Now, I am thinking, which gets me in trouble.

    I think the 80,000 PSI pressure and the 3000 FPS out of a 16" barrel is very impressive.

    The fact that this will be a proprietary round (and require a proprietary rifle at first) I would balk at buying one.

    Should SIG win the government contract and this caliber takes off in the market that would be a different story.

    "We spent a boat load of money developing a cartridge for a military contract. We have no idea how it's going to work out. But we're going to try and leverage our development costs by introducing it into the commercial market so if it fails to win the contract we can pawn it off on the civilians as the next wonder cartridge."

    Taurus and Smith & Wesson did the same thing gun wise with the OSS and their version of the M&P for the SOCOM trials that later got cancelled.

    However, the connection between the SS and Brass worries me. I can see that coming apart.

    So many new rounds coming out now, and some are certainly worth their salt, but most of us will have no real use for all these new ones. I can see certain applications for just about any caliber, but when you come down to it, probably what we already have in the safe will serve us until the end of our lives.

    Guess it's fun to try new things though.

    Yeah! No reason to own a caliber that is younger than you are.

    Interesting cartridge but cost would be the limiting factor for me. I can see the military going to 6.8, but the attraction to 6.8 Spc would be more in line to government logic than the performance of a new cartridge. One requires a new upper and mags while the other requires all new weapons and greater cost, taking away from all those wiz-bang high tech projects on the drawing board. As stated earlier, Sig would have to flood the civilian market to recoup their cost for government trials and rebarreling existing models of rifles for a new "HOT" cartridge isn't advisable, according to Sig themselves.

    No thank you. I just don't do unproven proprietary rounds, or wildcats anymore. I got burned with the .257 Roberts, and won't do that again.

    As for a cartridge with a .277 inch diameter bullet, I'll take the tried and proven .270 Winchester over the .277 SIG Fury any day of the week, and twice on Sunday just because I can. The exploits and writings of Jack O'Connor, the popularity, and the availability of factory rifles chambered in this round along with availability of ammunition more than offsets the .277 SIG round.
