When you mention rounds like 222 Remington, 257 Roberts, 6.5x55 Swede, and 7x57 Mauser going away, I have to ask what are things coming to?

The last 3 are a bit related to no med length actions like European manufacturers went with. US went big, then small.

In reality, the ideal USA hunting round is likely a 25-7mm bullet, in a .473-.480 medium length case with a sharp 40 deg shoulder, shooting a little mg for caliber bullet at 2800-3100 fps. 6.5x55, 6.5-06, 270 win, 280 Ackley are all in the ball park.
