Winchester® XPR Chambered in New 6.8 Western

January 25, 2021 — An accurate, all-around hunting rifle with a keen eye on the shooter’s budget, the Winchester XPR is now chambered in 6.8 Western.

The excellent ballistics of the all-new 6.8 Western chambering paired with the accuracy of the XPR is an ideal setup for big game hunting and long-distance shooting. The ability to send this new class of heavy, high BC .277 caliber bullets to long distances is no challenge for this combination.

With a maximum cartridge length of only 2.955″, the 6.8 Western fits into a short-action rifle, resulting in a 5% reduction in rifle weight compared to a long-action. Another advantage is the shorter, faster bolt-throw. To learn more about the features and specs, as well as access downloadable hi-res images, please visit:
