When she shoots several rounds, she needs a pad or needs to hold off in order to prevent the development of a mental flinch during the shot.
    No idea but could this possibly be of help for your wife?

    A couple of reviews on the product and some other products down the right side of the page.

    When up- or down-regulating ammo and brass production or bringing a cheap plinking option to market, what numbers do companies like Federal, Hornady et al., use? As industry-friendly as some of these manufacturers may be, one has to believe that their bottom line is the most important decision making factor. Once the 6.8 went off the rails (for the better, obviously) did the caliber lose its full ability to be monitored, spreadsheeted etc by these companies?

    What about the heavy ammo users... are most using handloads with "x" fired brass? It seems that with the improved performance first from the spc II chambering and later by those like Harrison that those in the know are doing just that to take full advantage of the caliber's potential. What I guess I am attempting to question is whether the 6.8's greatest advancement is also it's biggest detractor in terms of factory ammunition sales, which in turn affects production, cost and availability.

    Or is the failure of a true 6.8 explosion purely an advertising deficit or lack of mainstream visibility like previous posters have suggested? Maybe a call to Wahlberg wouldn't be such a bad idea, lol.

    A big part of the lack of support is Remington dropping it like a hot potato. This is something Remington does when they screw up and it has hurt several good calibers. Their latest fiasco is the .300 BO, they still push it but the funniest part is that the cheap ammo they kept talking about NEVER appeared. It is only a little cheaper than 6.8 at $500 a thousand vs about $600 a thousand for 6.8

    If another company were to push the 6.8 it would take off but a competing company is not going to push a Remington named product.

    You might need Portuguese to get the deal done, Czech made Brazilian owned but I like it
