    Don't forget the new guy on the block 6.8mm (effectively a .270 bullet in a 30 caliber casing)

    I like mine and have shot both 5.56 and 7.62.

    The 6.8mm provides more impact energy than the 5.56 and better trajectory than the 7.62.

    If could do it all over again (and I guess I can as soon as I get my tax return ^_^), I'd get a Marlin 1894 chambered in 357 magnum. Somewhere further down the road I'd get a caliber-matching Ruger GP100 revolver, or if the wallet allowed a model 627 8-shot S&W revolver.

    I currently have an 1894 SS 44 mag, which is a great and fun gun, but it's not exactly range friendly when 44 mag is damn near 50 cents a shot.

    I have the same rifle with a Ruger Super Redhawk to help spend my ammo dollars. Don't get to shoot them near as much as I'd like but they are a lot of fun. I would like to have the same set in 357.

    I heard that - the 6.8mm is not cheap to shoot either. It's running about $0.90 a round right now. Alot of people are reloading but I figure what it would cost me for reloading equipment and the amount I shoot it wouldn't pay for itself.

    They are trying to sell the 6.8mm as a replacement for the 5.56mm. If it becomes a NATO round it will probably be a lot cheaper. I'm not holding my breath.
