Re: 6.8spc -compressing powder
I have a stag 6.8 with 16 inch barrel. Had good luck with 29 grains H-322, SSA brass, 110 TTSX, and either 400 or 450 primers if I remember right. I'd have to look in my book, but was getting around 2700 on my chrono I think. I have a couple MTM boxes full and will last a couple years. I really like the gun for on snowmachine and 4 wheeler. The kids and I have killed a bunch of caribou over the last couple years and only had one not want to go down. Killed one at 550 yards too. We have got 7-8 blk bear with same gun, all went down within 30 yards. Have killed a couple wolves too , but had several run off and never got them after hitting them. I have seen friends shoot wolves with 30-378, bone chips & blood and ole wolf run off to die somewheres, so they are tough to kill I believe. That 6.8 is a great gun for deer I'd think. One of these days, I'm gonna shoot a moose with the 6.8.
