For those who are unfamiliar with the 6.8 Western cartridge, it is a round that was invented and developed by Winchester and Browning a few years ago. Being a 6.8 cartridge, it uses what people would simply call “270” bullets (referring to .270 Winchester; more specifically, .277″ bullets). The 6.8 Western cartridge also deploys a faster twist rate so you can utilize higher ballistic coefficient bullets. This makes it extremely effective down range on big game animals like elk, deer, moose, bear, and many others. All of the rifles that the 6.8 Western will be chambered in are listed below as well as a word from the company themselves:
