What makes a 6.8 so special?

So I read a lot on here about the 6.8. And I see a lot of people want a rifle in 6.8. So what makes the 6.8 so special that so many want one? Note: I know I could have googled for an answer, but I like reading ya'lls feedback.

I want to hear a real comparison between the 6.8 and 6.5. I am considering building a "long-range" upper and, right now, those are the two best choices.

My biggest concern with the 6.5 is the availability of brass.

If you had both in a 24" barrel, would there be much difference? I want a gun that, if we ever get to shoot the 600 yard range at McCain, will be capable.
