Those videos were funny!

First guy using anecdotal evidence of a Bass Pro Shop guy selling 2 people rifles and the wrong ammunition. Claiming one was an experienced reloader, and that said experienced guy belived the BP gun couner guy when he told the .270 WSM ammo would work in a 6.8 rifle. Said experienced reloader guy buys 100 rounds of the wrong ammunition.

Second guy preaching the need to dlow down the .270 Win to 2700 fps to make it a woods cartridge for short range deer. Also worried that todays bullets can't handle the rpm the 6.8 Western will generate.

Third video the guy is calling BS on Winchester's marketing. Like most manufacturers don't cherry pick data and bullets when comparing their new wonder cartridge to the established cartridges. Not to mention he can pull apart a cartridge and just eyeball the powder and tell you which "Winchester ball powder" was used.

I'm not saying everyone should buy a 6.8 Western. I'm just pointing out they're like every other guy out there trying to generate content. They're just trying to keep there viewership up, and I watched all that crap so I guess the got me. 😉

I purchased a Weatherby Vanguard synthetic stocked 270 from Walmart 3 years ago on closeout for $300. out the door. Shoots about a 2" group with WW factory 130's and haven't had much of a chance to experiment with hand loads much, but will try 130, 140, & 150's within the next month. If I don't get any better results, I'll probably do a custom barrel swap and keep it as a 270 Win., as I have a ton of reloading brass Any barrel suggestions? I have a 270 Ackley Improved on an Interarms action, McMillan Medalist stock, PacNor 1-10 medium sporter barrel that shoots most 130's really well.

I have a 6.8W and also a 270 wsm kimber montana with 1-8. I will probably do a 1-8 270 win someday but for initial builds preferred the slightly more case capacity of the wsm case in either persuasion. In the end I have gotten such great accuracy with browning and Win factory loads that I have not been compelled to load for the 6.8 yet, so though I reload for most, super accurate factory ammo is nice to me as I load for a lot of different rifles and rounds so can be a challenge to get to everything I want to with other activities. So I would personally go with the 6.8W. Much as you can do the same with existing rounds by doing non-saami things, Winchester has a nice out of box package to shoot high bc 277 bullets just like hornady did with 6.5 cm/prc.

Think the only thing that would make the 6.8 Western a relevant cartridge... would be the appearance of a 165 gr. Nosler Partition.

That bullet, at 2,950 fps at the muzzle, would be a hammer of a 400+ yd. hunting round.

Winchester offers a 162 copper extreme point. Not tried it but looks pretty good. Hammer also offers 156, 162, 168. I have some 156 will get around to loading.

1:8 Lilja Kimber Montana factory contour dupe in 270 Win @ 22” will shoot 140Gn Badlands Super BullDozer bullets w/BC of .650 @ 3150 in FF’d Rem brass and 3075 in virgin Nosler brass, the projectile requires 1:8 twist to stabilize. R-26 of course. While I have enough RPM to spin the new ABLR’s and others, the BC over the 140 compared against w/lost FPS doesn’t pencil out.

Put me in the 270Win camp.

It looks as though I need to sell my 6.5/06 for one

I’ve shot a whole bunch of critters w/the 140 TSX from a 270Win @ 3030fps MV. Grand scheme, that’s probably the very last combo I’d give up if I were forced down to 1-choice.

Ran into a clearance sale of Pierce Performance/Ted Nuget .270 Win. ammo a while back, loaded w/ 140 gr. TSX, at around bullet component cost.

Runs ~ 2,925 fps from a 22" Bbl. and is very precise.


For the big stuff.

I am building a new fast twist 270 win and I have no doubts I’ll be severely handicapped with it.
