I believe the claim it will work in a 30-06 length action would eliminate the RUM unless they trimmed it a tad.
If its the .375 Ruger necked down, then in essence, all Nosler did was make a beltless .264 Win. Mag.

Nosler has now said a "modified" 404 Jeffrey is the parent case.
For all practical purposes, the .375 Ruger is a chopped Jeffrey.

I don't currently own a 6.5 rifle, I'd like to change that soon but I don't see a .26 nosler making its way into my gun safe. If I don't rebarrel my .25-06 to 6.5-06 I'll buy a 6.5 creedmoor. The creedmoor is a heck of an accurate round and pretty easy on barrels.

If the 26 nosler is really only going to be good for a few hundred rounds before a new barrel is needed, it will end up being a novelty much like the 7 RUM. Great ballistics and great for long range hunting as long as it stays in the safe most of the time. Sight it in and put it up till your ready to hunt and you will have years of faithful service with it.

I've never been able to do that. I like shooting my rifles too much
