Practical range of the 6x6.8?

Totally dependent on your usage. 600 yard antelope have been done so................ For deer etc. I would look at a 3X9 or 4X12 same as I would about any deer cartridge that has this level of performance. Realistically on a decent deer the 350 yard mark ought to be looked at as MAX. Antelope are easy to die. If it's varmints like coyotes or PD's than I would go to up to 14.5or 16. Ritch killed a song dog at 419 last month with an 18" 6X6.8 and a 58 grain VMAX. For PD's 16 X is not too much to ask.

A 3X9 would cover pretty much anything down there. I tend to go big because I'm likely to take it on a trip to the PD field up North and 300-500 on those little guys is a challenge though I do shoot a straight 10X on my 223 Remington. It does mighty fine even out yoder but it and I have ad a 4 decades long relationship in cutting edge accuracy demands.
