History of the 6.5mm Remington Short Action Ultra Magnum. Wildcat ?:
The 6.5mm Remington Short Action Ultra Magnum (6.5 SAUM) for short, but not to be confused with the 6.5 Remington Magnum was produced by necking down the 300 Remington SAUM to increase velocity and a better short flatter at long ranges then the 7mm Remington SAUM (also necked down 300 Remington SAUM) .
As of this writing I have no idea what the “4S” in the headstamp refers too.
History of the 7mm and 300 Remington SAUM:
The 300 Remington Short Action Ultra Magnum (SAUM) was introduced in 2001 to compete in the same field as the Winchester .300 Winchester Short Magnum (WSM).
Short magnums were first introduced by the Lazzeroni Rifle Company, and are designed to operate in rifles with short actions to get long action performance by utilizing wider cartridge cases bodies to hold more gunpowder.
Winchester basically copied Lazzeroni’s ideas and introduced the Winchester Short Magnums (WSM) and Winchester Super Short Magnums (WSSM) in early 2000 and Remington followed with the 300 Remington Short Auction Utlra Magnum (Remington SAUM) in 2001 and later in 2001 with the 7mm Remington SAUM.
