    It's doable, but the upper would need an enlarged ejection port. Pretty sure Tomy at Tromix has done short mag upper before and Olympic carried them. OAL isn't an issue, I run my 6.8spc 130gr Berger load at 2.360 with a windowed PRI mag.

    Long ways to go with the 6.8 Western. The 6.8 Western factory loaded COAL measurement averages right around 2.917". That is over half an inch longer.

    Didn't catch it was that long oal. All these new high bc bullets are fantastic, but make the oal a hell of a challenge to fit in existing platforms.
