Winchester and Browning have collaborated to produce the 6.8 Western—a new take on the concept of the .270 WSM, using heavier bullets and a faster twist rate than previous iterations of the Winchester cartridges have used. Essentially, the 6.8 Western picks up where the .270 WSM leaves off, and delivers a whole lot more.
Weighing in at 5.5 pounds, the ultralight Sauer 101 Highland XTC is a well-balanced, all-around rifle, featuring a hand-laid carbon fiber stock, fluted and factory threaded barrel, fluted bolt and all the standard S101 features that guarantee reliability and accuracy.
Undoubtedly one of our nation’s favorite cartridges, the .223 Remington is capable of hair-splitting accuracy in a properly built rifle, has enough velocity for a respectable trajectory, and with the heavier bullets with a higher BC, can resist wind deflection rather well.
Nosler has taken the venerable .270 caliber to a new level with the introduction of the 27 Nosler. Conceived as a 21st century upgrade, the new cartridge delivers previously unobtainable downrange ballistics by pairing the ultimate combination of case capacity with modern long-for-caliber bullets.
Norma has expanded its popular BondStrike long-range hunting line to include 6.5 Creedmoor factory-loaded ammo and a 6.5 mm bullet for reloading.
