Hey All,
I found this forum and was tickled green (I don't think it would be cool to be pink) to find a place that discusses this fairly new cartridge and all of its potential. I believe there are big strides, yet to come, to be made with this little jem. I used to shoot a .270 Win. and did so on many of hunts. It was a preformer and I feel it is a good caliber for a great range of applications. I passed the gun on to my son and didn't replace it. I kicked this little round, about, for some time, deciding if it would fit the bill as a new shooter for me. I wanted a smaller cartridge , in a caliber .264 to .284, pleasent to shoot and perform at ranges out to 200 to 250 yards. I picked up a 23" barrel for my Contender and did a few rounds to see what this thing would do. I am very pleased and look forward to playing with some loads and fine tune it. I've been reading everything I can find on the 6.8 , hence I found this site. I want to absorbe as much as I can before I begin working on some loads for the different uses I want the gun for. Varmits to whitetails. I look forward to checking in here, often, and read whats being said here.

Let us know how the 6.8 Contender runs. I really should buy one, well after buying all the AR's I can in the next several months.
