Until recently the .308 was second fiddle to th 06. The .264 had benefits, but there were several alternatives that had ownership of the catalog. Nobody c a red about the newfangled magnum that was just redundant.

The .280 Remington was not needed. The 6.5 Remington wasn't wanted. The 6mms rem was unwanted, nobody cared.

There were so many rounds that were created for no good reason to fill needs that either didn't exist or were already locked into a traditional round.

How many people knew the difference between the .270 and the .280? The difference between the .243 and the 6mm? They bought what they were comfortable with, and in that time it was essential that the new cartridge literally explode into the public eye and develop a following within a few years.
