More on the 6.8 cartridge

Interesting article from 2018, December on he new 6.8mm round, and some interesting history…

I really question the “able to penetrate any existing or planned body armour” bit, especially out to 500 m. The development of body armour seems likely to continue, so rifles to penetrate it will get ever more powerful - and the new 6.8 mm is already in the magnum class.
