Tell your dealer you'll only buy it if he can supply you with 10 boxes of ammo at the same time . LOL

Unless you plan to shoot bullets heavier than 150 grain. you shouldn't need the 6.8.

My son n law, just got a Winchester 6.8. Just put a scope on it and he found ammo. He is itching bad! To go sight it in! I know that rifle can do more than what we are capable of doing, but, Weíre going to see what she can do!! Itís going to be fun! From the ballistics, itís a heck of a rifle. I told him, it wonít be long before the 7mm magnum or 300 mag will be made in fast twist barrel with ammo to match.

Only reason it has more bullet weights than a 270WSM is because they're loading more options in their 6.8 factory loads. It's their version of a 270WSM , the latest and greatest. Just build a 7SAUM and be done with it. Waaaaay more bullet weight options in 7mm than 6.8.

There's plenty of 6.8 ammo available around here. No one shoots them seems like, but the ammo is on the shelves. I think they're using it as a way to sell rifles. "Look, we've got plenty of ammo for this one"
