I think we need a KISS thread in that some folks seem to be overwelmed with all the different chamber dimensions and twist rates. As brought up in another topic, this confusion is leading some folks who are considering a 6.8 rifle to back away. While I agree that the standard chamber and 1:10 isn't ideal, for the average guy who won't run 500 rounds a year through it at no farther than 100 yards...it's good enough. And to the average shooter, he can't tell the difference between 2.28, 2.29, or 2.30 COL for his mags. Let's not scare the new guys off. Obviously, if your really into the 6.8, this doesn't apply to you as you already know the differences. There are those amoungst us that make a hobby of disecting the caliber and testing the differences to the millionth of an inch and have 28 different powders to test.
The average person can get by with the factory guns with factory loads, and still have an accurate, powerful rifle.
