Yeah, they have to plan on producing this Amma's if they announced it, and this batch won't be filling back orders. So, hopefully it will show up at LGS soon.

This is definitely a good sign. I have already seen the 6.8 western ammo available online so hopefully this won’t be far behind.

I agree, the 6.8 SPC II and the variety of bullets have done everything I needed it to do; It's not a show boat in one category but it seems to put category's in to one boat, it works well for me.

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.

I keep the XPs on hand in 6.5C & 308 Win. They both punch above their price class.

Their external and terminal ballistics have me looking forward to the 6.8 SPC version, especially if they're as hot they're claiming. Real Interested in chronoing them out of the 20 inch ARP and work up dope for them for this fall.

At this rate it will be fall before I can get my hands on some...

Will be interested in hearing how the factory loads and hand loads perform

Check out the Ballistic Gel test starting at 5:40.


As far as I know Winchester hasn't been selling the bullets for handloads yet. I wish they would though!

Sportsman's Warehouse in Phoenix has 6.8 Western ammunition in stock.
68100

They also had Federal fusion 165 grain 308 win In stock but I wasn't going to pay the $40 a box gouging prices they want for it.

Some of us (who had a head start) just take a break from it while the stupidity rages on.

Isn't that the true! If anybody wants to buy a 280 they've had a pile of it they can't get rid of...

To be honest the 6.8W looks pretty good to me. A 270 in a short action. But with the situation we have now in the USA, we are not adding anything to the Clan Battery that isn't a caliber we already have.
