Sources state that the new cartridge that Federal is hinting at will be a bit smaller than the 6mm many were hoping for. It appears that Federal’s new offering will launch the .224 caliber bullet. The question is, will the initial offerings be heavy target/long range bullets, or are we looking at another varmint cartridge? Their marketing so far seems to indicate the former.
Federal is set to spill the beans on 10/16/17, but we will update you as more details leak out.
