A lot of these new cartridges are the same reason Budweiser sells tall boys, 12 oz, bottles, 6 packs, 12 packs, 24 packs, 40s, suitcases, those great big cans for the bums... It‘s all the same beer but they get to own so much shelf space at the grocery store with all those options, and there’s only so much shelf space.

The other day at a Sportsman’s Warehouse
There were over fifty boxes of loaded 6.8 western cartridges on the ammo shelf
No other loaded ammo in the store accept .40 S&W
I asked if they had a rifle to go with all the ammo,
They said it would be a few months.

Yep. Took that picture yesterday. Received the same answer from them about the availability of rifles. Mid year or later 😆

Could be genius marketing. By the time rifles show up there will be so much anxiety about never finding ammo again, and heres allll this 6.8 ammo. Everyone will reflex buy and it will be the new creed.🤔
Just think though ADG, Atlas and Peterson will make good brass for it.
And WSM cases will be obsolete. 🤣
Edited spell check
