What’s wrong with the 270wsm ? My next barrel will have a 1:8 twist which will suit the 170 Berger’s
You should be able to handload the 6.8 Western to about 3100 fps with a 170 eol and the right powder. Will run about 2950 fps give or take with factory loaded 170gr ballistic tips.So, who knows the ballistics on this 6.8 Western? Other than being in a short action and maybe making a slightly lighter rifle for hunting, What makes this better than a 270 with a 1:8 twist shooting the 170 berger at 2900 fps?
I haven't seen the down range numbers so someone who has help me out..
I have always been a fan of the .277 cal would like to see a good comparison.
it is not a prc size case it is a wsm size caseIt is the 6.5 PRC in 270.
The shoulder is pushed forward just enough that it won't chamber in a 6.5 PRC. Now you can have modern case design in your favorite Fudd bore size.
