Ok, I am intrigued by the last offering on the 6.8 page. Those are going to be awesome out of my 20" pipes, and they will probably fill the only void in the 6.8's arsenal.

Please, give us some info. Is this a new bullet you worked with Berger to produce? Or is it their existing 140gr. VLD? What is the estimated muzzle velocity?

Muzzle velocity, BC, and expansion threshold?

I am interested in the 140 VLD but I dont see how your going to get a whole lot of velocity out of the round.....

IMHO the 140 Berger is going to be a subsonic suppressor round.

According to their website (Berger) the G1 bc is .487 and G7 BC is .248.

Compared to the 264 .612 and .313


Recommended twist is 11 for the above 277 bullet. I'd say 2450 in a 18-20" bbl is likely.

Looks like a interesting bullet to bad my good SAM-R 6.8 is 1-12 twist and probably not stablished them :-(

I was thinking ~2300fps from a 16" bbl, still 1000+ ft lbs of energy at 300 yards.

A 140gr projectile at 2450fps would be a game changer, but I'm not sure it's possible.

well thats nice, course it would help if you shipped my 500 rounds of primed brass I ordered over a month ago, not sure how they could offer new ammo if they can't ship the orders already outstanding

There is a typo on page 8. The chart comparing 8" SBR's states 6.8x35mm....should read 6.8x43mm, unless there is a new very shortened 6.8 cartridge I am unaware of.

Figured you guys might want to know so it can be changed.

Great looking line-up of ammo.
