    Default 25-45 sharps

    Anyone see a need for this round? A 223 necked up to 25 cal. I think the 223 case has a hard enough time pushing a 22 cal bullet let alone anything bigger. Now if the would have necked the 6.8 down to 25 cal that might have been a winner. Supposed to reveal the round a SHOT. Sharps and federal went togther on it. Everyone wants to use that bolt for everything huh?

    there is a long thread on arfcom about the 25/223 where they trimmed the case down a little to avoid canting which seems like it may be an issue with this round...

    Necking up the .223 is a good thing and takes advantage of the larger, more efficient bore size. Diameters such as .25 and .243 on that case are giving great results. Of course the SPC case offers a bigger engine for those bullets, but there are a bunch of people out there who insist on using a .223 bolt and mags for their variant ARs.

    Here is some info on a .25 cal wildcat based on the 6.8 case

    Same guy also makes a 6mm, and a .22 cal both off the 6.8 case... And maybe a 6.5mm
