6.8 WESTERN

A Browning and Winchester collaboration, the 6.8 Western capitalizes on the demand for .277-calibre cartridges for long-range hunting. Using long, heavy bullets that maximize ballistic coefficient, the 6.8 Western comes in 165-grain Long Range and 170-grain Silver Tip versions (Browning offers a 175-grain bullet). It’s chambered for short-actions, making for a shorter bolt-throw and less rifle weight.
