    It's definitely over-bore with regard to case capacity. My 6.5-06 (6.5x64) is, for sure. Hard to say how long the barrel will last, but there are certainly better, more efficient options, I'm certain.~Muir

    I used to use the '68 on roe and red,devastating on both with a drop of only an inch at 200 if zeroed at 100
    Good round but a tad fast on the roe,perfect for red
    Used a 120g nosler BT in mine,dropped a bit more than the factory 93g rws rounds
    Does burn the barrel more than the '55,then again it's a magnum or near enough one
    Chronographed the rws factory rounds at about 3600 fps,fast!If I remember correctly,while now since I used it
    That comes at a price,ie barrel and throat wear,wear ear defenders too,wakens the dead at 4am
