Considering the 264 Winchester Magnum's maximum powder charge for a 129 grain bullet is around 77-78 grains of powder,and knowing the small life span of that caliber's barrel,I'd be really suspicious of anyone claiming that putting even more powder capacity in a case shooting the same bullet would have a good barrel life expectancy.
The 6.5-284 is a great long range caliber,but guy's that shoot it know they will be replacing barrels at least once a year if they shoot it often.
And this new 26 Nosler is even faster! Yeah,It's going to burn through barrels left and right,even if they have changed the case design shoulder angles to 40*,it's going to flame cut the throat out of the barrel in a small amount of time.
