    The AR15 class of cartridges grows by increments daily but they've already bumped the ceiling- magazine length. They all are "almost" something else...still not a 22-250, still not a 30-30, still not a 6.5 Japanese, 45-70 etc.
    Ain't it fun?
    I want a 6.5 Grendel next- I have no idea why!

Can a twist rate change make such a significant increase in velocity to make a difference ? Or is 7.62X40 WT just not sounding as COOL as 300 HAM'R ? I'm not trying to rain on anybody's parade, and I'm not a number cruncher, so somebody may have to explain this to me with crayons so I can understand. I just don't see the difference.
    I'm in agreement, I think it is a marketing ploy as 1mm more of case over the 7.62x40WT isn't really much. BTW, I own a 7.62x40 and it is a fun little round to shoot using cast. I even chambered a barrel in it for my CPA using reformed .357 Max. brass in order to have a rim for extraction.

    How does the 300 HAM'R compare to the 30 BRX or Dasher?
