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 like it because it is a low pressuer round also. Something that I can buy a barrel for my Thompson Center Contender. Currently I have a 16" 223 barrel that my son will use for deer hunting when he is ready, then I can move him up to a 6.8 in say a 20" barrel and still be able to shoot the same gun with an extended range.
