Looks like Winchester is finally getting into the 6.8 spc game. I’ve had good luck with quality of there brass in the past. Just hoping for small primer pockets and a reasonable price.

More the better...
Look forward to having another bullet and brass in the wild. We need more cheap options, we have plenty of high performance options but not enough plinkers especially for the non reloaders out there.

I have reloaded .243 Winchester brass so many times I lost track. Never a problem.

Wow this really is good news. There has always been a part of me that fears for the extinction of this chambering.

Who knows what it's going to be . The box says 120 grain and the write up says 115 grain . Manufacturers specs / bullet descriptions are almost always sales department generated and may not represent the true product . Hopefully this will be a new bullet and brass option .

Love to get my hands on some, but atm 2 or more bucks a round isn't good.

Glad to see more options, more the better.

Glad to see since the purpose of my 6.8 is Whitetails... Has this been seen in a store yet? Around me the stores have nothing on the shelves except for a box or two of some caliber you've never heard of.

Someone here made the excellent observation that Winchester started making 6.8 SPC ammo at the same time it introduced its big brother, the 6.8 Western Loudenboomer.* It looks like Winchester's marketing department thinks it important to have a 6.8 "family" of cartridges.

* Ok, OK, they didn't call it the Loudenboomer....... but maybe they should have.

Friend o’ mine shoots the XP’s in a different caliber and loves them. His shop hasn’t received any of the 6.8’s yet so he hasn’t gotten any feedback from customers. Hope I can help him out with that soon.

Since they cannot keep up with existing products, not sure how likely they will get a new product shipped out.

Still glad they are working on it.
I actually see the fact new chamberings are coming out as a good sign . If manufacturers thought the current crices were going to continue they would not be expanding their line .
