To my way of thinking, Savage is the natural vehicle for this cartridge as home barrel-swaps are very easy with the Savage. When the throat area burns out, a few hundred bucks and fifteen minutes later - you've got a new barrel!

For this reason, I would not consider any other gun maker for a magnum cartridge... For a 280 for example , yes I would look at other brands... For a 7mm Remington Magnum, Savage only.

Also, Savage is not having to make serial recalls as Remington currently is having to do.

I think I will contact Savage and recommend this cartridge for their line.
i voted for Marlin!

yes, the Savage would be an excellent choice for that cartridge. even if Savage doesn't chamber one factory, all you would need is a long action receiver, and get in touch with one of the custom barrel makers, and you would have one in a short while.

Personally,I think the 26 Nosler will be a shortly lived cartridge,as are a lot of wildcats. For a hunting rifle,it will have a good life,for a rifle that serves as a target/hunting rifle,you better have a few new barrels setting in the corner for it. You will probably be changing them out at least once a year.

Shooters of the 6.5-284 can tell you how short a life they have with their barrels,and this screamer will only be worse.

I've got to try one of the Marlin bolt actions, they look good.
