Today, I set the chrono up outdoors and brought the Rem 700/.270 out with my "pet" load, a 110 Sierra and 55.3 grs of IMR4350. The Sierra Manual listed it a 3200 +, I expected 3100+, and felt CERTAIN I would break 3000 easily, which was the object of the light bullet load. Did not feel I could get 3000 fps from the 22" tube with a 130 gr slug.

So I wonder just how far behind the 6.8 is behind the 270?
I think your missing the point. Yes the 6.8 uses the same bullet as the .270 but it was made to shoot in an AR platform. This you cannot do with the .270.
