Watching an hunting show on the Sportsman channel. Husband and wife hunting on location in Colorado, with family.
The husband had taken a mulie with a bow, and she almost taken a mulie with a rifle. But I digress.
The fly in the ointment was the fact that Browning company has come out with a rifle chambered in 6.8 mm. I did not know that
I believe they call it the 6.8 Western.
My first thought was, WHY.
The gun gurus have been hitting the 6.0mm & 6.5mm platforms pretty heavy lately. According to the hype, it will carry a heaver bullet weight ; without giving anything away to the other 6mm & 6.5mm bullet trajectory. Advertised numbers for ballistics approach the
the .308 diameter 30-06's 150 gr bullets, vs. Browning's 6.8mm 140 gr bullets.
In all honesty, I can see where a new shooter might like the smaller boring.
